This is at the corner of 7th and Market as demonstrators walked by for 4 minutes, but the entire length of the march took more than 45 minutes to pass... estimates put the crowd between 35,000 and 80,000... count them here!

East of Potrero Hill, once an industrial neighborhood making warships, steel, sugar, rope, and more, where flimsy wooden structures teetered on long-gone hills, the area has had an arts renaissance that is now giving way to high-end condos, the encroaching medical/biotech industry, and even more grandiose plans for highrise development.
