Protesters gathered at the San Francisco Federal Reserve Bank at noon and marched down Market street in Downtown San Francisco in solidarity with protests going on in New York City. The march, gaining followers as it progressed through downtown streets, peaked at around 400 people. People from different ages chanted “We Are The 99%” and “Who’s Streets? Our Streets” while police stood by.
The rally remained peaceful and according to San Francisco’s public information officer, Carlos Manfredi, no arrests were made during the march. “They have the right to their freedom of speech. We just want them to do it legally,” said Manfredi.
After the march, the organizers of Occupy SF put a call out on their website for the following things: tarps, tents,rain pants, rain coats, shoes, socks, warm clothes, sleeping bags, pillows, sleeping pads and blankets.
Update 11:19pm: The official Twitter of Occupy San Francisco updates that the city has ordered an eviction notice on the camp in front of the Federal Reserve Building in Downtown San Francisco. We’ll be updating the story as it progresses.
