San Franciscans from all backgrounds marched to the beat of drummers,
mega phonic chorals, and mostly unified causes yesterday. Under
a pristine azure sky, the largely peaceful rally drew out numbers
as high as 50,000 demonstrators according to organizers.
Increased police presence insured public safety and radical extremist
controls. Twenty-two Black Bloc anarchists, however, were arrested
for blocking traffic and other acts of civil disobedience. Earlier
in the afternoon, an NBC News truck was vandalized by, according
to witness reports, members of the Black Bloc contingent.
