Garden Lockdown at BIO 2004

Police prevented the lockdown circle from completing its cuircuit, but Green Bloc and Pagan Cluster activists held their ground in the intersection of Fourth and Howard, outside the entrance to Moscone Convention Center.
The direct action was part of the Reclaim the Commons convergence, which included garden projects, a colorful giveaway festival in the center of the downtown shopping district (the Really, Really Free Market), and several days of street actions opposing the BIO 2004 biotech industry convention.

"Rocks" lockdown in the intersection of Fourth and Howard, outside the BIO 2004 corporate convention.
The lockdown alternated between standing, sitting or kneeling, and lying down.
