Following events in Tunisia and Egypt, groups in the Bay Area organized a Day of Solidarity with Egypt and Tunisia Rally. The event MCs led the crowd through chants against against Mubarak, freeing Tunisia, and even Egyptians coming out to free Palestine from Israel.
The day began with chanting, moving on to speeches, and then to marching around the city of San Francisco, chanting against Mubarak and his policies, demanding that he leave, and demanding that the US government stop their imperialist policies which empowered Mubarak so long as he played ball and kept good relations with Israel. The rally organizers announced towards the end an estimated turnout of 7000 rally-goers.
What follows below are photos and videos from the event. I'm placing a big disclaimer here, stating clearly that not all of what you'll see, you'll find agreeable. Take what good you can find, leave what is harmful (or wacky, this is San Francisco), and make du‘ā’ that whatever the best outcome is, that it occurs, and we ask Allāh to forgive us our shortcomings, sins, and misunderstandings, and as always, we earnestly ask that He guide us to what is most pleasing to Him.
The following is a playlist of video footage from the event, covering some of the speeches and the march. There are 21 small videos, you can scroll from one to the next by clicking the forward and back arrows on the left center and right center of the video area:
