ANARCHIST-COMMUNISTS BREAK AWAY FROM MAINSTREAM
PROTEST OF NEARLY
100,000 IN SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA

An anarchist-communist group from the San Francisco
Bay Area was
instrumental in facilitating a breakaway march from
the IAC/ANSWER-led
demonstration in San Francisco on October 26th.

Over 3000 people deserted the IAC rally and the IAC
speakers and
the police-approved protest to take back the streets
of SF.

The break-away protest overturned barricades, marched
into on-coming
traffic, broke into spontaneous sprints to outrun the
police, and cut
through parks and side streets to keep cops away and
the demo alive.
A man who decided to drive his SUV into the group was
left with a
smashed-up car and 4 deflated tires.

The anarchist-communists, red and black flags waving
high, created a
much-needed counter to the liberalism and
anti-organized anarchism in
the Bay Area.

Pictures below are from San Francisco Indymedia.
