1, 2004 - Out of the Cubicles, Into the Streets!
of 4th and Mission Street in a Metreon window display taken
before the convergence took over the intersection.
Starting in Yerba
Buena Gardens in front of the monument to consumerism and entertainment,
Day convergence took to the streets.
The convergence, more
festive than angry, took a sound system and a party atmosphere into
the middle of 4th and Mission taking back, at least for a short
time, a cityscape devoted to "commerce
The radical revelers
continued down Mission street and cut over to Howard where gathering
police ordered the crowd onto the sidewalks.
The bicyclist pulling
the sound system was the first
target of the Police. The sound
system was confiscated and the bicyclist was arrested. This
seemed to be selective enforcement as many other people were in
the street at the same time.
Several other people
were arrested including a woman who attempted to dash
across the street after apparently being fingered for arrest
by the police for dancing in the streets (why only she was targeted
is somewhat of a mystery.)
