Event description
Can we rise up like Hong Kong? Fill Mission Street from 5th to 8th Streets. Needs at least 880 people. Bring your charged phone to hold up.

About this Event

When over 3.5% of a population commits to sustained peaceful protest, there is no uprising in history where protestors' demands were not met.

We're starting by putting out a call for 880 people, about .01% of the Bay Area's population. Please join us to fill half a mile of Mission Street between 5th and 8th Streets for a Vigil for Democracy. Symbolically from the SF Chronicle Building to the Federal Building, where Speaker Pelosi's office is. Bring your fully charged phone to hold up, forming a chain of light during overhead photography. (If you have a laser pointer or a lightweight powerful flashlight, bring it!)

Assemble by 8pm, overhead photography by 8:30pm. Then stay to watch a protest art projection on the side of the Federal Building at 1140 Mission St, ending at 9:30pm. There will be music and samosas during the art projection.

If we don't get at least 880 people to RSVP (or if not enough people show up by 8pm), we will simply watch art projections by AEMarling, which are fun on their own. See our video featuring previous projection events.

Speaker Pelosi is the most powerful Democrat in government. If Trump and Pence disappeared, it would be President Pelosi! She said just last week that our public protests give her leverage against the cruel administration. Whether you are a fan or a critic of Nancy Pelosi, this event is for you.

We have been holding vigil at her office daily during congressional recess. Sep 7 and 8 will be the last of our #42days of vigil here for now. Help us finish strong and make San Francisco proud!

Public Transportation: The Federal building is 0.2 miles from Civic Center Station (BART/Muni). Note that we are gathering on the side of the building, on Mission St. (NOT 7th.)

Last, but not least, thanks to Brad Newsham for inspiration and support. Brad is the father of Bay Area mass mobilization and aerial capture. He has relentlessly done IMPEACH on the beach events since January 2007 against Bush, and since 2017 against Trump.
