Occupy Can't Wait to Make Life Hell for Golden Gate Bridge Commuters

No more dressing up in ugly hospital gowns or sending mean Valentine's Day cards to Wells Fargo executives. It seems 99 percenters have decided it's time to go big or go home.

On May 1, occupiers aren't just going to make life hell for Wells Fargo executives  -- they are going  to make life hell for all 99 percenters commuting between here and the North Bay with an obnoxious occupation of the Golden Gate Bridge.

They plan to shut down the bridge to "show the Golden Gate Bridge Highway and Transportation District that fair wages and benefits can not be ignored."

According to the Occupy the Bridge! Facebook page:

Buses will be leaving at 6am from 19th and Telegraph and Justin Herman/Bradley Manning Plaza. Buses will return in time for the noon Occupy Oakland convergence, as well as for planned labor rallies at Union Square in San Francisco.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
