World Can't Wait LIVE

The World Can't Wait contingent just returned to Justin Herman Plaza (at the foot of Market Street in San Francisco) after marching down Market Street to the Civic Center plaza, past city, state, and federal office buildings, and back down Market Street. Below the fold are some photos from the march.

Not exactly your typical protester

Some of the protesters dressed in Guy Fawkes masks, in an homage to the film V for Vendetta, whose ominous relevance to our present situation is unmistakable.

UPDATE: The latest word back at Justin Herman Plaza is that, after having granted our permit for amplified sound from noon to 9 p.m., the SFPD has unilaterally revoked the permit, despite the fact that the protest has been entirely peaceful (with zero arrests, in fact) and entirely within the bounds of the permit. It's difficult not to see such an action as politically motivated, but I'll see if I can find out the official explanation.
