SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — Demonstrators are on the march through the streets of San Francisco as they take part in what’s being termed by Occupy Wall Street organizers as a Halloween march and rally.
Some in the crowd, estimated to number about 1,000 people, are wearing suits, appearing to imitate Wall Street bankers. Others are wearing “Robin Hood” outfits.
During the march the crowd stopped briefly and chanted in support of Scott Olsen, the 24-year-old Iraq War veteran who suffered a fractured skull during a confrontation in an Oakland occupy protest.
San Francisco police officers are out in force, escorting the mostly festive crowd as it makes its way through the city’s streets.
Saturday’s March in San Francisco was among of a number of occupy events in the San Francisco Bay area on Saturday, including a rally and march in Oakland Saturday night.
