Hear audio of the last 40 minutes of the anti-war rally at the Civic Center, San Francisco, on March 19, 2011. After the rally, a march proceeded down Market Street to Union Square for a rally and speak out at several of the union-busting hotels in that area, including the Westin St. Francis. (40 minutes)
Speakers and topics included the Haiti Action Committee; a spokesperson for military prisoner Bradley Manning; several groups of students for education not war; stop impending war with Libya; the BART killing of Oscar Grant; the National Committee to Free the Cuban 5; labor activist Mike Casey; and Boots Riley, vocalist/songwriter of popular East Bay bands The Coup and Street Sweeper Social Club.

A rally was held later in the day at the St. Regis Hotel to protest former Bush Administration National Security Advisor Stephen Hadley, who was giving a keynote address at the World Affairs Council conference at that hotel.
