There are a few rules in life one must abide by if one is to "do it right." If you're in the mood for good surf, you head on down to Hawaii. If you're looking for deep dish pizza, you find the cheapest flight to Chicago. And if you want to see a protest done right, you head to San Francisco.
The prolifically passionate bunch turned up in full force on Saturday for the Bay Area's chapter of the worldwide March Against Monsanto. (While the actual number of participants will surely be debated, I eyeballed at least 500 protestors, and if you wanted to twist my arm to say there were another 500 that straggled in late, I wouldn't fight you on it.) The group joined up on the San Francisco side of the Golden Gate Bridge at 11 a.m. for an hour of rabble-rousing before taking the bridge itself by storm.
