Tibet Protest on Golden Gate Bridge – High Rez Photo.

Monday, April 7th, 2008

Read all about today’s protest at KPIX / CBS 5 (along with Eye on Blogs from Brittney Gilbert). Are there really two women in this photo, as alleged here? [Update: No, just one, that makes more sense.] See the mise-en-scene from a good angle here.

Local updates as they happen on the -ist network’s San Francisco website. Up-and-coming San Francisco Supervisor Chris Daly has a few thoughts about these Olympics. And sexy train rider Elaine Santore writes in her CrackBerry Chronicles that she is bracing for Wednesday, when the Olympic Torch makes it only visit to North America. It looks like it’s going to be a humdinger of a day.

Beijing, Are You Ready for this? It’s hard to say. Word on the street today is that the planned route for the relay is now history. 

Finally,  check out hard working Frederic Larson as he once again provides great photos to the San Francisco Chronicle.

The protest people look down as some bridge workers come up:

Things looked a little shaky at first, before the banners and flags were unfurled:

Hundreds and Hundreds Protest Against the War in San Francisco

Monday, March 17th, 2008

Both Senator Carole Migden and activist Sean Penn were scheduled to appear at the peace vigil yesterday to mark the fifth anniversary of the war in Iraq. Migden spoke to the crowd, as did Cindy Sheehan and Matt Gonzalez, but Penn might not have made it due to production of the Milk movie.

It was a sell-out crowd, so organizers had to turn people away. There’ll be other chances this week, as the official fifth year anniversary of the war is March 19.

Update: You may find a complete account of the affair over at the CrackBerry Chronicles on Fog City Journal. Famous videographer Josh Wolf brought his you-know-what to record video of all the speakers. Bonus. Check it out.
