On Super Tuesday, anti-war activists in San Francisco visited the campaign headquarters of Democratic presidential hopefuls Hilary Clinton and Barack Obama, to deliver the message that neither candidate is unequivocally anti-war and in fact have taken positions that indicate support for a continuing U.S. presence in Iraq and Afghanistan, and for possible invasions of Iran and Pakistan.

Demonstrators, accompanied by about a dozen San Francisco police officers, marched from U.N. Plaza, carrying signs and banners, to Clinton's campaign office on Howard St. and were met at the door by Clinton staffers. After a brief dialogue, demonstrators tried to enter the offices and were denied entry. Police stepped in to keep activists from going inside. Demonstrators then taped up large posters on the building's exterior, and Clinton supporters came out and ripped the signs down, claiming the right to do so because they were "defacing" the building.

After the confrontation at the Clinton office, demonstrators proceeded to the Obama office near Market and Octavia and were met by Obama staffers at the front door. This time there was no conflict, as demonstrators explained their concerns about Obama's questionable anti-war credentials. After another 10-15 minutes, the demonstration broke up.
