Photo taken when: May 1, 2012 12:29 PM
Where: Market & Montgomery, San Francisco

Appeal reader Joe sends in “the view at Market & Montgomery” at 12:29 this afternoon, as May Day demonstrators take over the area, at least for now.

The SFMTA warns that one should expect “rolling delays on 5, 6, 9, 21, 31, 38 and 71 due to demonstration at Market & Montgomery.”

The SFBG has a pretty comprehensive list of May 1 demonstrations and protests here. Appeal contrib Violet Blue also has a few photos of the Market Street demonstration here.
