Photos of Counter-Protesters May Day March
Photos of Counter-Protesters in front of San Francisco's City hall on Saturday May 1st 2010.
On Saturday May 1st while a pro-immigrant rally was taking place in San Francisco's Civic Center demonstrators against illegal immigration waved their flags and signs in opposition to the rally taking place across the street. Some of the folks on the anti-illegal immigration side were immigrants themselves and were simply against anything done illegally. The presence of these demonstrators sparked anger and outrage amongst the pro-immigration side, so the scene was very tense for a few hours. The police were forced to stage themselves between the two groups. San Francisco has been labeled a Sanctuary City by pro-immigrant groups and people.
I am posting these photos because the public needs to know?
Please do not associate me, the photographer with any of the ideas or signs displayed by the counter-protesters.
