These are from Saturday, January 21st, 2012, in San Francisco, CA.
This is going to be a bit of a short report. I didn't take a lot of pictures of signs that were the same as last year. What I was primarily interested in was that the event got bumped from their usual location by a competing event - the West Coast Rally for Reproductive Justice who apparently got their permit application in earlier or something. This was just as well since the Walk for Life totally overflowed their location, and the new location in front of City Hall is much better. It's not only larger but also the walk was was right smack down the middle of Market Street instead of around the edge of the town.
First off, let's check out the West Coast Rally for Reproductive Justice:
I can't believe I get suckered by these people into showing up for these things. 80 people and a couple of tables with brochures. Let's see how the Walk for Life is going...
That's more like it.
The square was pretty full. A few people with larger signs were stuck in the wettier grassy corners.
But basically it looked like this - a great mass of people as far as the eyes could see.
And all pretty much all on message. I didn't see a single weird sign.
I love it that she cited her source.
Back to the big signs where there was actually room to take pictures.
People continued to flood the square. It's five minutes before the march starts and these folks just got out of the subway.
Here's the head of the march. I then switched to video. This is just a few minutes since it took over 40 minutes for them all to pass by me.
