    there were a ton of police vans parked all along steuart st near ferry plaza; they all took off about 20 miinutes ago on “a call”. most streetcars are turning left at steuart and not heading up market. Giants fans are starting to appear on foot, heading south to the park.

    There was a small crowd at Post/Montgomery/Market at about 2pm… with a police escort almost as large as the “protesters”… they made noise in the intersection then headed up Market. not really sure why they get to shut down traffic/street cars when they could easily have fit on the sidewalk.
