Over 1000 in peaceful protest at San Francisco's City Hall.
Photos: Pro Bono Photo / Leon KunstenaarPeople began accumulating at United Nations Plaza, next to Market Street before noon on Saturday. The rally started as protesters addressed the growing crowd.
They then marched the short distance to the steps of City Hall where activists continued to speak. There was no music or entertainment. The mood was anger mixed with sorrow as black and white people spoke of the very difference worlds they inhabited.

A white "skinhead " type appeared. As the crowd's hostility grew, a black man intervened and led him to safety.
