SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Dog walkers are planning to protest a politically conservative free-speech rally by leaving pup poop at San Francisco’s Crissy Field.

A Facebook page encourages protesters to let their dogs loose Friday and Saturday morning at the park near the Golden Gate Bridge and not pick up after them.

The page assures dog owners that they can come together Sunday to clean up the field of feces and “hug each other.”

WEEKEND OF PROTESTS:
Berkeley Denies Permit For Anti-Marxism Rally On Sunday
San Francisco Muni Shuts Down Cable Cars, Other Routes For Day Of Protests
Park Service OKs San Francisco Crissy Field Permit For Patriot Prayer, Counter-Protests

Portland, Oregon-based Patriot Prayer has a permit to host a 2 p.m. “freedom rally” Saturday at Crissy Field, despite the vociferous objections of San Francisco’s Mayor Ed Lee and other Democratic leaders who say the group invites hate.

In a late development, organizers of the planned Patriot Prayer on Friday afternoon announced that they were cancelling the Crissy Field event scheduled for Saturday.

  1. Quite odd you don’t mention that this is a violation of federal park regulations. But hey, who cares if you get to spite the Free Speech of people you don’t like, huh? “Rules for thee, not for me.” https://www.nps.gov/goga/planyourvisit/dog-friendly-areas.htm
