Oh boy, this was the loudest and most disruptive hotel picket line I’ve seen in San Francisco. Now up at the wharf hotels, back in the day, you’d see a police presence and all sorts of rules about when and where strikers could march, how much noise they could make, etc.
But not at the Grand Hyatt, scene of recent filming for NBC’s horrible Trauma TV serial. From what I could see, it was totally wide open at the 72 hour strike that ended yesterday. Anything goes so anything went.

The protest was loud, loud, loud – kettle drum, tire iron on a iron skillet, megaphones with sirens. It was a circus.
See that? All the bellhops and security agents had something in each of their ears – either radio speakers or earplugs. (That should keep Cal-OSHA happy.)
Bang the drum slowly, but loudly:
On and on they went…
“Who’s got the power?
We got the power!
What kind of power?
