San Francisco, March 2007

Two Days of Witness and Protest

Photos by Luke Hauser

On March 18-19, 2007, thousands of people took part in a peace march, a spiritual witness, and a nonviolent direct action protesting the United States' ongoing war in Iraq.

The Monday direct action was anchored largely by faith-based activists, including many people from Reclaiming.

The march on Sunday drew about 10,000 people, a modest size for San Francisco. On this page and the "Signs of Protest" page are photos from the march.

The crowd gathers at Embarcadero Plaza

Reclaiming activists held a pre-march ritual, then processed to join the march. Here, a group carries the Sun, Moon, and Earth standards that were blessed at the previous day's Spring Equinox ritual.

The 10,000 marchers proceed up Market Street, commercial artery of San Francisco.

The Brass Liberation Orchestra and other marching bands and drum corps enlivened the march.

An ocean of handmade and mass-printed signs floated above the march.

Luke Hauser (aka George Franklin) is a freelance parajournalist in the service of the Goddess and planetary revolution. His photo-filled book Direct Action is an historical novel about Bay Area protests.
