Today I went to a protest. The protest was on Trump's child detention policy and the shittiness of ICE. Appropriately, it took place in front of the building that houses ICE's San Francisco office, on Sansome Street in the coldest part of town, the Financial District. /1
A noontime wind whipped off the Bay and through the dark streets. Many in the crowd - between 700 and 1000 - difficult to tell because there was a lot of coming and going - were bundled up or shivering.
The scene was solemn, the chants strong but cold. /2
Unlike every other San Francisco protest I've been in, this one had no joy. That sounds strange, but, when you are out on the street with others, united for or against some cause, there is warmth in solidarity. You don't feel alone, you feel hope, you feel joy. /3
