Several hundred protesters marched up Embarcadero starting at Justin Herman Plaza a little after 2PM. After five or six blocks the police forced everyone onto the sidewalk and arrested a few people after they stepped into the street. The protest went all the way up to Pier 39, but the police blocked the entrances and told protesters they would be arrested if they entered. The tourists at Pier 39 were not allowed to leave by the police until the protest had left the area. The march then looped on back streets to the Embarcadero and went up the sidewalk to Justin Herman Plaza. After the protesters rejoined the larger anti-war protest the police rushed in and tried to arrest someone. Protesters yelled at the police and the police line formed near the ANSWER stage. After perhaps ten minutes the police charged the crowd throwing three young men on the ground (the police stomped on one young man's head leaving a bloody mark above his right eye) After that the crowd slowly dispersed.

"Dennis Martel was the guy in charge of the mass arrest of 279 people back in '95 in SF during a march in support of prisoner Mumia Abu-Jamal -- the cops surrounded us, having given no order to disperse. Many passers-by were swept up & held in jail with the rest of us. We were all eventually released after three days in jail, with all charges dropped -- they basically wanted our photos & fingerprints & names & information. And now, Martel continues with his nasty tactics... "
