Sat May 3 2008 SF May Day RTS
Reclaim the Streets In San Francisco On May Day, there was a Reclaim the Streets action in San Francisco. A little over 100 people participated. The mobile party started in Civic Center and went all the way to golden gate park.

It left Civic Center around six PM. There was some confrontation early on while leaving Civic Center. The participants were pushed back onto the sidewalk for about five blocks and then claimed the streets once again. The police abandoned dealing with the party and soon left afterwards. At this point in time the party continued zig-zagging Haight street with some minor confrontations with motorists. Gaining more support along the way the part ended up at Golden Gate park in which a parked bus provided some tunes for a dance party and chalk/art session. Cops came later on and the people still danced. Eventually the action faded.
