Into the Streets: Stop Bombing Gaza!

On Tuesday, December 30th, a third protest in support of the people of Gaza shut down downtown San Francisco. Thousands lined the sidewalks outside the Israeli consulate, and then spilled out into the streets. About 50 Zionist demonstrators were overwhelmed by throngs of pro-Palestinian protesters. Finally we took over the streets and marched.

At first, police tried to contain the crowd on the sidewalk next to the building, while directing Zionist demonstrators to the opposite side of the street. However, the pro-Israeli group of about 50 was quickly overwhelmed by hundreds of boisterous pro-Palestinian demonstrators, who spilled out onto every sidewalk, finally pushing across police lines and entering into the streets. The group chanted and danced in the street for about an hour, blocking the intersection of Montgomery and Sansome, and then mobilized for a march through downtown on Market Street, through Civic Center and into the Tenderloin. The march was several blocks long, with perhaps 2000+ people participating. The demonstration was part of a national Day of Action called by the ANSWER Coalition, Muslim American Society Freedom, Free Palestine Alliance, National Council of Arab Americans, and Al-Awda, International Palestine Right to Return Coalition.
