On Saturday, March 21st, protest marches took place across the U.S. and around the world on the sixth anniversary of the invasion of Iraq.

The protest in San Francisco this year seemed a bit smaller than in past years. The starting rally at 11am seemed even smaller unless you walked around a bit. The main stage was in Justin Herman Plaza but there were two other stages nearby; a labor contingent against the war had a stage South of the main plaza and BAYAN and and a few other groups had speakers North of it in Embarcadero Plaza.

At noon all groups came together and the crowd on Market Street was probably several thousand strong for awhile. The rain started getting worse as the march progressed and many people left before the march finished in Civic Center Plaza (where there were more speakers)
