Over 7000 People Protest in San Francisco in Solidarity with the People Uprising in Egypt
As the people of Egypt continue to stand strong against the repression of the Mubarak regime, demonstrations of support for their courage and resistance have broken out around the world.
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.
