Our correspondent Laura O (of @caltraindiaries) sent the photo above to us at 6:46 p.m.: May Day protesters are blocking all buses on the corner of 16th and Mission. People holding black flags and signs protesting anything from police brutality to education have taken over the intersection. The southwest entry of the 16th Street BART station is closed. Laura says that about 20 buses are blocked from passing through, and there are four people doing a sit-in at the intersection. The 14-Mission and 49-Van Ness are stuck on Van Ness and is stopping along South Van Ness instead, as of 6:58 p.m.

    And people still wonder why trolley wires are still strung over South Van Ness Ave. decades after that section was converted to diesel buses. Well, events like this are why!
