On a warm Memorial Day with California slightly relaxing its lockdown, a Code Pink car caravan delivered an anti war message to the steps of Senator Diane Feinstein's Pacific Heights $10 million mansion.

After assembling in the parking lot of Marin's Peace Lutheran Church, the caravan, complete with its "Ghandhimobile Caboose" crossed the Golden Gate Bridge and wound its way past the San Francisco National Cemetery, down a section of Lombard Street and up to the Feinstein mansion.

In an adjoining cul de sac, about twenty demonstrators deployed signs and banners and several people spoke.

The message of peace provided a welcome counterpoint tp the usual militaristic Memorial Day rhetoric.

Thank you to Code Pink for having the strength to do a car caravan on a 90 degree day in San Francisco demanding war profiteer millionaire Democrat Feinstein support peace for a change.

Meanwhile, a short distance from the Golden Gate Bridge, at Aquatic Park, part of the National Seashore (federal land) at the foot of Van Ness, we witnessed the roar of a military plane escorted by military helicopters right over our head as it cruised over the Bay around noon on Memorial Day. This writer pointed out to all who could hear "That's why we are so poor! We can't have guns and butter."

Shortly thereafter, we had the bored San Francisco police on motor bikes (somewhat smaller than the motorcycles) ride on the very crowded Promenade through federal land, where they have no jurisdiction. Aquatic Park was very crowded on the beach, in the bleachers, and on the grassy areas nearby. To top it off, 2 San Francisco police on horses rode on the Promenade toward Fort Mason, all federal land. There was no reason for any of them to be there. The police are of course a home guard version of the military, with their lethal weapons and vicious attacks on the workingclass. With the police killing on Memorial Day in Minneapolis, the latest of the 400 year lynchings and genocide of African Americans, we now have a good case for calling for the elimination of the police departments everywhere, just as we certainly have a good case for eliminating the military. The military only exists to maximize the profits of the oil companies and munitions makers.
