87 comments

Protesters have shut down the westbound lanes of the Bay Bridge on Thursday morning while calling for a ceasefire in the ongoing conflict between Israel and Hamas in Gaza.

The protesters went onto the lanes of the bridge sometime before 7:45 a.m. near the Treasure Island on-ramp, according to the California Highway Patrol.

A press release from organizers of the protest said they are calling for an immediate ceasefire in the Middle East conflict and for an end to U.S. military aid to Israel.

If Biden and the boys at APEC can cause a week of gridlock in SF, why not protesters for peace?

Does the government have carte blanche to inconvenience the people – without compensation for the sake of their political agendas? I had to take the whole week off from working in South Beach for their shenanigans.
But its the protestors that don’t want are tax dollars going for bombs and missiles that should be arrested?

SF oh November 16, 2023 - 5:45 PM - 5:45 PM

I’m no fan of the APEC conference. It was a waste of money and it inconvenienced SF residents, and businesses. Also why are all those Green Energy supporters flying in to SF instead of Zooming the whole thing. However, I don’t think the protests on the Bay Bridge and APEC are the same. We’ve known about APEC for at least a month. We all knew SF would be a traffic nightmare. Those attending APEC had a legitimate reason to be there and additional security was necessary. I don’t know your route to work but you did have the information in advance so you could plan an alternate route or adjust your hours. Travelers on their way to SFO to catch a flight this morning were just stuck on the bridge for 3+ hours with no way out. Had they known a group of useless idiots were going to pull another one of their stupid stunts which accomplish nothing, those travelers could’ve avoided the Bay Bridge. Yes, the other useless idiots, Biden, Blinken, Yellen, Kerry, etc created gridlock and accomplished nothing also. But, at least, we knew in advance and could avoid them.

Are you sure they are all liberals? There’s quite a few on the right that don’t like what is going on in Israel too. And I seem to recall the protest was only supposed to block one lane on the bridge. Yes, I’m sure anyone that had to go that way were frustrated and something that needs to be taken in account when you organize such a thing because it can work against you.

Do the protesters realize they may be changing someone’s life that has nothing to do with what is going on. they may be missing a flight or going to a funeral or wedding, even visiting someone in the hospital that may be the last time they will see the person or heading to surgery. We have the right to protest and i understand however to stop innocent people that may be heading to something very important just makes no sense.

At best the Palestinians are stupid for starting a war they had a zero chance of winning. People at times can be such a disappointment.

You must be watching to much CNN. What do you call what Hamas did on October 7th, if that wasn’t genocide I don’t know what is.
The IDF told the Palestinians to move south to save lives, Did Hamas do that on October 7th, NO.
Does the IDF hide weapons under hospital or in kids school.NO.
You need to educate yourself on what’s really going on on the Mid-east.

Guido November 16, 2023 - 11:41 AM - 11:41 AM

Civil Disobedience has been the cornerstone for change in America’s history. Almost 60% of Americans want a cease fire in GAZA now. This is not being liberal or conservative, this is called being humane. Israel is committing genocide against the Palestinian People as we did to our American Indians. Israel has the right to defend themselves, but it is against International Law to target innocent citizens; and that’s what they are doing. Israel will never defeat HAMAS militarily, just like they were never able to eliminate Hezbollah during their invasion of Lebanon in 1982. As long as Israel’s Military continues to target and kill innocent Palestinian citizens; the survivors of such families make perfect recruits for HAMAS. Also, the real headquarters of Hamas is in Dubai…I don’t think that’s on the list of U.S. and Israeli targets!

Cowellian November 16, 2023 - 12:46 PM - 12:46 PM

The only ones targeting civilians are the hamasholes! They’re also the ones hiding behind civilians, which is also a violation of international law.

Rollo Tomasi November 16, 2023 - 3:02 PM - 3:02 PM

It is also against International Law to use hospitals as a cover for military operations as the Hamas p***ies do. The IDF provides secure corridors for Palestinian civilians to egress and Hamas stops them at gunpoint. Stop pretending there is a moral equivalence. “From the river to the sea” is a rally cry for the elimination of Israel.

Wage Slave November 16, 2023 - 3:50 PM - 3:50 PM

The US did not commit genocide against American Indians. Disease killed most of them inadvertently before colonization really began. Then Europeans expanded into their territory and displaced them, often involving armed warfare. I’m not making moral judgements on that one way or another, just pointing out it was not genocide, which is why we still have multiple tribes/reservations today. Accurate use of terms is important, don’t devalue the term the way “racist” has been.
The only place I can think of where the weaker human population wasn’t conquered and subsumed into the dominant population or outright exterminated is North Sentinel Island in the Andamans. And you can bet your rear that would change in a hurry if they found oil or gold there.

They were first abused by Russians to build Fort Ross, then by the Spanish to build the last of the missions in Sonoma! Then the Gold Rush brought other Europeans that had the one wish to only eliminate every Indigenous Californian!

If the Israelites didn’t care about lives they could have turned Gaza into a parking lot the same day the Palestinians butchered, raped and burned babies, women, college students. It is Hamas that is refusing to let their citizens go while they use hospitals and schools as their base.

Give back the hostages and there will be a ceasefire. Isn’t that simple?
The fact is that they were still under the last ceasefire when the hamasholes attacked again. Every ceasefire has been intended to keep Israel from defending themselves. You may blame all of those civilian deaths on the terrorists who intentionally attack civilians in Israel and hide behind civilians in Gaza, all in violation of international law.

What is the benefit of a protest 3000 miles from the issue? If you want to protest a war, go over to the war and put your signs out and stop it. How is it going to help by shutting down the Bay Bridge? All you are doing is pissing people off that have nothing to do with Gaza and Israel. The US has no control over that issue and neither do commuters.

SF OH November 17, 2023 - 11:00 AM - 11:00 AM

According to the SF Chronicle and ABC 7 News, a UCSF courier carrying organs for transplant were caught in the Bay Bridge delay caused by idiot protesters. The courier was forced to re-route, and what would normally be a 1/2 hour trip became a 4 hour trip. So all of these clowns who claim to care so much about innocent lives in the Middle East are endangering lives right here in the Bay Area. Ignorant losers with no common sense. You can’t fix stupid.
