While most of the Bay Area was marching for women's rights on Saturday, artist/activist Zach Fernandez was scaling the Golden Gate Bridge to hang his own massive protest poster from the iconic landmark.
Fernandez, who is also responsible for altering the Hollywood scene to read "Hollyweed" on New Years Day, told TMZ that he managed to get onto a walkway below the roadway of the Golden Gate Bridge on Saturday night to install a banner which reads "IMPEACH," SFist reports. He also managed to snap the daylight shot of it above before it was removed on Sunday morning.
Of course, this weekend's many protest activities were somewhat par for the course in the Bay Area, where we have a long history of political and social action. Over the last 60 years, San Franciscans have joined together to denounce segregation, inequality, the Vietnam War, the Iraq War, Wall Street, tenant eviction, and more. Take a look at SF's history of protest in the slideshow below and take heart— whatever the next four years brings, our city will be ready to resist, signs in hand.
