May Day Marin

with 3 comments

May Day came and went peacefully in Marin County. We did see a gigantic Fat Cat at the Larkspur Ferry Terminal , and peaceful protesters of all persuasions in the San Rafael City Plaza, but nothing like the excitement generated by the thousands of protesters in nearby Oakland and San Francisco.

As usual, violence monopolized the headlines and generated the largest photos. It’s amazing how a handful of violent people can focus our attention.

Sometimes it seems like it takes many thousands of peaceful protesters to make a ripple.

More that 100 union protesters blocked the entrance of the Larkspur Ferry Terminal, shutting down the morning ferry commute to San Francisco.

Protesters from many backgrounds gathered to listen to speakers at the City Plaza in San Rafael California.

Ties and suits welcome.
