2:40 p.m.-Today in downtown San Francisco, thousands took to the streets
to disrupt business as usual in response to the war. Roving and sustained
blockades of major streets began as early 6 in the morning, and grew in
size and intensity throughout the morning.

Anarchists were prominent in many of the blockades during this time. After
many regrouped around noon at the Civic Center, a block black (BB)
about 500 strong began marching down the main street, Market, heading up a
march of several thousand peace protesters. For reasons that are unclear,
the BB headed down a side street, and then turned and marched parallel to the
main march a block away. At that point, riot police moved swiftly to trap
the BB at either end of the block, brutally clubbing people who were trying to
escape the trap. There are approximately 200 BB expected to be arrested.

Protests are expected to continue throughout the day and night, and into
the days to come. . . .
