Protest at SF Mission Police Station

I participated in a peaceful protest with thousands of people in the SF Mission. We stood in front of the police station. SF had not yet lifted the 8pm curfew. When 8pm came some of the protesters announced they were leaving peacefully. About a tenth of the protesters remained after curfew. I did not witness any violence. There was a moment when someone threw a bottle of water down from an upstairs window or rooftop of one of the buildings immediately north of the police station. A man in the crowd picked up the bottle while others urged protesters to remain peaceful. I stood at the steel barricade past curfew. I wore a black skate helmet and heavy gloves. A 23 year old woman spoke at length to the officers. She told them it was their fault we had to be out there. That she just wanted to be living her life in peace.
