Demonstrators gathered at the foot of Market Street, and after several minutes of silent mourning for the people lost in Iraq, made their way to the San Francisco Armed Forces Recruiting Center where they proceeded to remove stacks of recruiting brochures and smiling cardboard cutouts of members of the U.S. armed forces -- throwing them into the street.

Continuing through San Francisco the protesters, trailed by a small number of police officers, headed to the British Consulate were they rallied inside the atrium of the consulate building.

While the rally continued, workers started to close the atrium doors. The protesters, fearing that they might become stuck inside, moved to the streets. As the last door closed one of the workers flashed the peace sign at the exiting protesters.

One more day of resistance, San Francisco.

( inexplicably, while the protesters were gathering, at least 20 police officers road into the plaza on bikes, and then proceeded to ride through a dry fountain in the center of plaza.)
