"A spirited and militant crowd gathered at Powell and Market Streets on the evening of Dec. 2 in San Francisco to demand "No escalation! Troops out now!"

"Richard Becker of the ANSWER Coalition and Frank Lara of the Party for Socialism and Liberation spoke at the rally, as well as representatives from One Struggle One Fight and others. Cristina Gutierrez of Barrio Unidos closed the rally with a call for the need to speak up and fight back against the U.S. imperialist destruction going on all around the world.

"More than 600 people took to the streets and marched through the main shopping district shouting, "Wall Street's war? We say no! The occupation has got to go!"

"The event was organized by the ANSWER Coalition and co-sponsored by World Can't Wait, Code Pink, UFPJ and Veterans for Peace."

Great job on this video, Bill. And thank you for being in the demonstrations so often, and then sharing videos with all of us.
Judge Jackson who chaired the Nuremburg Trials (1945) says that the planning and doing of aggressive war is the supreme international crime as it actuates all other crimes high, low, big and small. He further says that it is the supreme international crime whether Germany does it or the U.S.A. does it.
