Last night we saw the community once again rise up in support of ‪#‎Frisco5‬. We began with 5 but now we are growing to ‪#‎Frisco500‬ and will soon be ‪#‎Frisco5000‬. From the more than one thousand marchers on May 3 to the community members who echoed the #Frisco5 calls for justice last night at City Hall, a movement has been born.

Supporters of the #Frisco5 Hunger Strikers called a vigil for 3:00 PM on Friday, 5/6 at the UN Plaza, a block away from City Hall. But it was a diversion - a larger group entered San Francisco City Hall and took up a presence outside the Mayor's office about 4:00 PM. As the evening wore on more supporters, now being referred to as the #Frisco500, came and occupied the lobby of the building.
