Over 2,000 people rallied and marched in San Francisco yesterday in a protest organized by the new "The World Can't Wait! Drive Out the Bush Regime!" group. Hundreds of youth walked out of high schools across the Bay Area and made their way to the SF City Hall in groups of three to forty. The event was part of a national day of action billed as the "beginning of the end of the Bush Regime."

Event speakers included Cindy Sheehan of Gold Star Families for Peace, California State Senator Carole Migden, SF Supervisor Chris Daly, CODEPINK’s Media Benjamin, Jeff Paterson on behalf of Not in Our Name, Paul George of the Pennisula Peace and Justice Center, a taped message from Mumia Abu Jamal, and a statement from WCW initiators the Revolutionary Communist Party.

The march down Mission Street and back up Market was a sea of energized youth carrying aloft the distinctive WCW signs, doted with red “Not Our President! – Not in Our Name” posters and Earth flags. During the morning commute, Not in Our Name held a 40-foot banner over Interstate 80 that read, “Join Not in Our Name – Drive Out the Bush Regime” with a smaller banner with the time and place of the rally.
