January 22nd Rally and Marches on SF's Stand Up for Choice Day
Sat Jan 22 2005
Pro-choice and "Pro-life" marches face off in the streets of San Francisco
1/22/2005: The San Francisco Board of Supervisors declared that January 22nd, 2005 was "Stand Up for Choice Day" in advance of today's protests. About five thousand people gathered this morning for a Roe v. Wade Anniversary Demonstration that included a rally with speakers on Market Street and a march to the location of an anti-choice rally. After the march, participants lined the Embarcadero as the "pro-lifers" paraded towards the Fisherman's Wharf tourist district. The route of the parade was stopped twice by pro-choice protesters. Police kept the women's rights advocates out of the street as much as possible, divided them up on the sidewalks, and escorted the anti-choice march through Fort Mason, down Marina, to the park area where a post-march anti-choice "Information Faire" was to be held. The pro-choice march was eventually allowed through Fort Mason and headed to the Marina Green.
