A Scuffle in the Twitterloin: Guardian Angels Attempt to Impose Sharia Law on Prostitutes in SoMA

Tuesday, August 30th, 2011

Here’s the aftermath:

Now, what gives the San Francisco Guardian Angels the right to impose their values, you know, regarding issues such as the appropriate amount of body-part-showing-off you should be doing, in San Francisco?

San Francisco: Hundreds of Irate Tibetans Protest 2008 Olympics in Beijing

Monday, March 10th, 2008

March 10 is the anniversary of the Tibetan National Uprising so there were protests all over the world today. San Franciscans saw about 400 people march from City Hall to the Chinese Consulate.

We’ll get to see the Olympic Torch passing through in April. San Francisco is the only stop in North America for the flame so expect to see a lot more protesting going on then.
