Fanning the Flame of Freedom?

Today’s the Olympic torch relay here in San Francisco. The city has already played host to anti-China protests over the course of the past week, everything from a massive rally at the Civic Center to the daredevil antics of three protesters who scaled the cables of the Golden Gate Bridge to hang Free Tibet banners.

Following the disruptions in both London and Paris over the weekend, San Francisco authorities are locking down the route. You can follow the action at SFGate and the SFist. At present, it’s possible to hear and see helicopters from the Mid-Market part of town. Action!
