San Francisco: Thousands march against war, racism and poverty

SAN FRANCISCO – In the largest peace demonstration the Bay Area has seen in many years, more than 35,000 people from all nationalities and political persuasions rallied and marched April 20 for an end to the real “axis of evil – war, racism and poverty.” The demand for an end to the slaughter and destruction in the Palestinian homeland, and to the occupation by the government of Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, with complicity by the Bush administration, was a dominant demand.
