In San Francisco a coalition of organizations quickly pulled together to call for today's protest. Many organizations from the Arab American community were involved as well as a number of anti war groups including the ANSWER Coalition. An opening rally was followed by a march that went past City Hall and and the Federal Building to draw attention to the the $1.5 billion dollars the US gives to the the Mubarak dictatorship.
