In San Francisco, tens of thousands gathered at 11:00am at Civic Center Park for a rally and march. As the march began, protesters filled up Market Street for several blocks. At the head of the march was a band of Native American drummers. As the front of the march reached Octavia St., thousands of protesters fell to the pavement in a symbolic "die-in". For several minutes, the demonstrators lay on the pavement, representing over 1 million Iraqis who have died since the US invaded their country. The march ended at Dolores Park, where demonstrators listened to speakers, including Cindy Sheehan and American Indian Movement leader Dennis Banks.
