Protestors marched through the Fillmore District during a demonstration against displacement of minority communities in San Francisco and to demand justice for the family of Mario Woods on Friday, Jan. 15, 2016.

At one point during the march, protestors occupied the intersection of Geary Boulevard and Webster Street by standing in front of vehicles causing heavy traffic congestion. Members from Black Lives Matter Bay Area, Last 3 Percent Coalition and the Justice for Alex Nieto Coalition showed up to join the protest. No arrests were made.

This protest was the start of the second annual 96 hours of action in the Bay Area, a national call by the Anti Police- Terror Project to honor and reclaim Martin Luther King Jr.’s legacy.
