As reported by the Chronicle, today’s demonstration to mark the 6th anniversary of the war in Iraq.  Steve Rhodes tweeted the whole thing, with Josh Wolf piping up later in the day. Josh estimated 1000 participants in the rally. For other coverage,  BCN via KRON, and Indybay‘s #nowar Twitter updates

Appeal contributor Darryl Bush was out in the action, and took the above gallery. We also received two pieces of video from the rally by reader raqcoon, which we’ve embedded below.

    Personally I’d rather see a raucous crowd like this tossing eggs or something at AIG and WaMU’s office, esp. since AIG is suing the federal government for 300 million dollars and WaMU is suing the FDIC.

    If people in SF can’t get as outraged about this kind of corporate dishonesty, which frankly leads to things like Bush’s War, well then who will?

    Besides if they took on AIG et al en masse, I think most people, of all political stripes, wouldn’t mind seein’ ’em go all medieval.

    It’s good to see young people going out of doors and getting some exercise. Nowadays, it’s easier than ever to lead a sedentary lifestyle in front of a computer screen. These young athletes are setting an excellent example for all of us.
