SAN FRANCISCO (Sept 11, 2004) - About 50,000 people jammed Speedway Meadows in Golden Gate Park yesterday for the 6th annual “911 Power to the Peaceful Festival” presented by Michael Franti and Guerrilla Management. Live performances by Spearhead, String Cheese Incident, John Butler Trio, and Xavier Rudd had folks dancing between alternating sunshine and fog. Amy Goodman, Media Benjamin, Mario Africa, Barbara Lubin and a host of Youth Speaks! poets kept things flowing between sets. Despite a 45-minute interruption in the show due to a blown power generator, folks seemed to enjoy the afternoon, check out the dozens of community organizations and “peace/green vendors”, and just hang out—who could complain for a completely free show?
