Wed Mar 20 2013 (Updated 08/09/13)The Day San Francisco Exploded with Civil Disobedience
Wed Mar 20 2013 (Updated 08/09/13)Ten Years Later: A Look Back at SF's Resistance in the Days After Iraq War Began in 2003
Ten years ago on March 19, the U.S. bombing, invasion, and long-term occupation of Iraq began by order of George W Bush with the consent of the over 70% of Americans. Ten years ago on March 20 — after months of permitted marches on both sides of the San Francisco Bay intent on preventing the war — those opposed to U.S. military action rose up to protest en masse by shutting down downtown San Francisco in perhaps one of the largest collective acts of civil disobedience ever seen in the area. On the first day alone, over 50,000 demonstrators filled the streets of San Francisco and nearly 1,500 people were arrested by SFPD.
"We Interrupt This Empire..." documented the rebellion.
"Direct Action to Stop the War" was the protests' organizing spokescouncil.
