Occupy SF ... San Francisco-Style

Posted By on Mon, Oct 10, 2011 at 8:10 AM

In New York City, they Occupy Wall Street movement has drawn thousands of people to the lower Manhattan area to protest "corporate greed." On one occasion, more than 700 protesters were arrested on the Brooklyn Bridge, sparking what some are calling a new era of dissenters. Meanwhile, in San Francisco, where the make-banks-pay movement has spread, things have been a little more, well, zen.

In case you don't work anywhere near the Financial District and haven't had the chance to see this group in action, here is what an average day for OccupySF protesters looks like:
