These photos were taken at the "Global Day of Action" rally in San Francisco on Saturday, March 20th, 2004.
You may have seen other photos taken at the rally, reprinted in newspapers like the San Francisco Chronicle, or on Web sites of groups like A.N.S.W.E.R. But none of them truly capture the essence of what the rally was really like. The only way I could find out what was really going on was to go and document it myself. Which I did. I took so many pictures that I have posted them here on several pages (to avoid having over 100 images on one Web page). There were several "themes" to the event, but the primary and most visible ones are the ones listed below. Click on each category to see pictures from the rally illustrating each theme:
