via Occupy SF:
"At Van Ness and Geary protesters squared off against a blockade of riot cops in the rain. "Cops go home!" was chanted with brazen voices as the police rampantly pepper sprayed protesters as they waited for reinforcements. The march continued onward when suddenly the familiar sound of revolution rang through the air as [the Black Bloc] smashed through a luxury car dealerships window which caused a rift amongst the march. At this point a meeting was called and the decision was made to head to the Cathedral Hill Hotel which had been expropriated by the protesters. A marching band played jubilant tunes and a banner was dropped: People's Food: Bank of America."
