These are from Thursday, May 1st 2008 in San Francisco, CA - May Day. There were several events from 5:45 AM to events starting as late as 7:30 PM scattered over a wide part of the Bay Area. These are from two different events - one in the morning, one in the evening.

Morning March/Rally: This was kind of a combined anti-war/pro-union/pro-immigration event, so expect to see a little of everything.

Best of - My favorite pictures, just in case you're short on time (combined morning/evening).
The main report - A multi page picture report of everything I saw... except the things I've broken out into their own sections, below.

Strippers - There's a local unionized strip club - they had good turnout but I didn't want to clutter up the main report with their pictures.
Oh God Not You Again - People I recognize to the extent that I left them out of the main report

Evening March/Rally: Heavier on the immigration, lighter on the war, but still some of each and lots of communists.

Best of - My favorite pictures, just in case you're short on time (combined morning/evening).
The main report - Everything from the evening in a single narrative report.

Also, video! My feeling is the pictures really let me point out the interesting bits, but sometimes some video gives more of an overall feel. First video from the morning, second from the evening...

If you don't see the video, go here to see it.

Thanks for the Links!

This isn't complete, but in addition to links from some of the above so far I've noticed links from Michelle Malkin and The Corner and Gateway Pundit. It's a lot of work doing this (7 miles of walking, an entire work day gone, transportation costs), and it's a lot more rewarding when people actually see the results!
