On August 15th, a protest was called by Anonymous in San Francisco that shut down four downtown BART stations during the evening commute by simply walking from one station to the next. MUNI service was disrupted as well in the stations that BART chose to close rather than face protesters. Street-level buses and traffic were also effected during the march from Civic Center to Embarcadero. These photos are a continuation of the photo series begun at http://www.indybay.org/newsitems/2011/08/16/18687876.php.

Marching through the Ferry Building must have freaked out SFPD as suddenly 20 or more officers appeared on the scene. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/San_Francisco_Ferry_Building

He swung and poked his nightstick through the gate opening, futilely attempting to discourage protesters from entering the station. Perhaps 10-15 made it through, and then rode trains to other stations.

It's unclear why California State University police were present. Also seen were San Francisco sheriff's deputies.
