The San Francisco Tax Day Tea Party Protest in Pictures

Today was a beautiful day in San Francisco where not everyone is on board with Speaker Pelosi's agenda: a large crowd turned out for a tax day tea party protest. Here is the crowd in front of the San Francisco City Hall:Note the policeman at the left standing calmly on the steps. This was a peaceful and well-behaved crowd. Here is another at the same location:

This picture was taken in front of Speaker Pelosi's office:

There were some interesting signs. These two put some effort into their signs (Queen Pelosi says "let them eat pork!"):

"Your pork broke my piggy bank":

"Honk if you are paying my mortgage":

"Oink if I'm paying your bills":
(PowerLine used the above photo for their roundup.)

"ObamaNomics: chains we can believe in":

Lastly, here is another crowd shot taken in front of Speaker Pelosi' office:

UPDATE: Charles Martel estimates the crowd size at 700. Michelle Malkin has a tea party round-up here. Instapundit is providing updates and photos. GatewayPundit's round-up is here.

UPDATE from Michelle Malkin in Sacramento on the protester's dissatisfaction with the GOP:

Something hugely significant just happened here at the Sacramento Tea Party. Organizer Mark Meckler singled out GOP opportunists who wouldn’t give him the time of day weeks ago — and then wanted to hitch their wagons to the Tea Party bandwagon at the last minute.

Meckler said he heard that California GOP chair Ron Nehring was in the audience. Meckler invited him to say hi to the crowd — and then ripped him for waffling on the massive tax hike ballot measures (particularly Prop1A - $16 billion tax hikes).

Massive boos from the crowd of thousands here against the Calif. GOP establishment.


Reports from New York State's tea parties are here.

Still more photos of this SF tea party are here and here.
