On Saturday, August 12th, protesters gathered in San Francisco to demand an end to the destruction of Lebanon, an end to US aid for Israel, and also demanded "money for jobs and education, not for war and occupation." In San Francisco, several thousand protesters gathered in Civic Center at 11am before marching up Market St. around 12:30pm and returning to Civic Center for another rally at 2pm.
