San Francisco 2004

It has been one year since the start of the war with Iraq. Protesters came out for the cause and to protest everything else too. Just like in the 1960s, these anti- war protests are very democratic; everyone seems to be able to get his or her personal yah yahs out. A lot of cell phones were being used by folks who were there and not there at the same time. The best cell phone use I saw was people holding their phones in the air to send the sounds, music, speeches and photos to someone who could not be there. It was a beautiful day in the neighborhood, with a festival atmosphere in front of City Hall.
