Occupy South San Francisco members joined members of the Raging Grannies and Peninsula Direct Action in downtown Redwood City today. They reminded passers-by of some of the important issues that face the Peninsula and the nation with a display of the placards they've used over the past year at dozens of actions. They also passed out flowers to celebrate the anniversary.

Occupy South San Francisco members brought a box of flowers to downtown Redwood City today. They set up in front of City Hall and were joined by members of the Raging Grannies and Peninsula Direct Action for a celebration of the one year anniversary of the Occupy movement.

The group commiserated over the arrests of fellow protesters in New York City's financial district. They then sang songs to lift the day's mood and passed out flowers to pedestrians on the sidewalk and drivers stopped at the busy intersection of Middlefield and Jefferson.

Some of the issues the demonstrators have protested over the past year include: tax breaks for the rich, budget cuts to schools and essential services, exploitation of workers in China by Apple, Chick-Fil-A anti-gay owner bringing the chain restaurant to San Jose, and a new jail in San Mateo County.
