Here's what I've got so far.
Note that there are "web size", "email" and "edited email" (small) versions available and also some gif files.
You'll want to upload the pictures on to your own site so they download quickly in a browser.
Here's the directory where I'll be uploading stuff all day:
Story that goes with this footage:
So I walked from 16th and Valencia over to Market Street (about 8 blocks) and then one block over to where Market meets Haight. The entire intersection (all 5 parts of it) was blocked off and cars were forced to wait at a standstill. The cops appeared to be nowhere in sight. (But apparently they were close by and just monitoring the situation, rather than interfering with it.)
Over about 10 or 15 minutes, the protesters announced that their work at that intersection was done and that they were moving on to Van Ness and Mission.
The protesters moved out of the way and the cops rode in on their motorcycles (2 of them) and a few protesters worked with the cops to get the stuff out of the street and get traffic moving again.
Then a funny thing happened: all of the cars that had been forced to wait honked their horns in support of the protesters!
Okay I'm off to 4th and Market where I guess a different group of protesers have taken things over there.
I'll be back later this afternoon!
