Tried to get photos from the Close the Camps demonstration outside Senator Dianne Feinstein’s office yesterday, but only one came out.

The demonstration moved into the street at Montgomery, so SFPD rerouted traffic back up Montgomery to clear it and Post Street. Several of the demonstrators helped guide traffic to get the drivers back on their way.

The demonstrators then moved into Market Street, and a while later set off for Representative Pelosi’s office at 7th and Mission. I bowed out at that point, having hit maximum crowd exposure.

Lots of news cameras, and wow, talk about a job that requires you to be light on your feet and have eyes in the back of your head.

Tourists stopped to take photos of those of us across the street holding signs. Just another day in San Francisco.

The prizewinner was a middle-aged white man who was in the stopped traffic. He got out of his car, came up to me and my friend, and asked, “What’s this about?” We showed him our signs. He snorted derisively, and said, “Thanks for ruining my day.”

Dude, being stuck in traffic is an inconvenience. You know what ruins your day? Being held in a cage with no food and sleeping on a concrete floor.
