Photos from This Weekend’s Golden Gate Bridge Protest
We’re on week three of the nationwide protests over the police killing of George Floyd and the systemic oppression of people of color. Over the weekend there were a couple dozen protests throughout the Bay Area and it was amazing. It’s incredible to see so many people from all walks of life standup together and fight for racial justice. It’s even more exhilarating to be part of it.
One of the more important parts of a protest is creating a spectacle. That way, both traditional and social media can report on and share it, thus amplifying your message for many more people to hear. And what better spectacle than shutting down one of the most iconic landmarks in the world?
This protest, led by youth activists Tiana Day and Mimi Zoila, consisted of thousands of people taking over the Golden Gate Bridge and shutting it down. And I was on hand to take photos and a little bit of video. Check it out below and check out our list up upcoming protests right here.
