I can't tell you how excited I am that the Olympic torch will be in San Francisco on Wednesday. It's literally going to be a chaotic, insane mess. I'm also looking forward to it because I've always wondered what it's like to be maced - and I'm not even planning on protesting.
But just so you know, SF isn't going to have some half-assed protest. No sir. We do it right out here on the west coast. And to prove that, protesters have already started to get going on what should be one epic protest.
Earlier today, three protesters climbed suspension cables of the Golden Gate Bridge and unfurled two large banners that said "One World One Dream. Free Tibet" and "Free Tibet."
Here are the
And here's a shot of the signs they put up. Shockingly "China Rules!" was not featured.
It's unclear if the protesters are part of an organized protest group called SF Team Tibet, but I'm not sure that really matters. The signs are still up as I'm typing this, so I have no clue when they'll be taken down.
So yeah, Wednesday should be fun. If we already have protesters risking life and limb to illegally climb up the Golden Gate Bridge, I can't wait to see what they'll do at ground level. Best. Olympics. EVAR.
