On August 3rd, 2019 members of CODEPINK San Francisco gathered at the Ferry building to engage in educational outreach in support of the 2020 Flotilla to GAZA. Members demanded an end of Palestine repression in demonstrations on a ferry ride and in Sausalito. As part of planning for the 2020 Flotilla to Gaza, Code Pink demonstrated their support of Palestinian rights in a demonstration in Sausalito and on the Golden Gate ferry. After a stern demand to not wave their Palestinian and Peace flags on the vessel, they held signs in support of Palestinian rights and against Israeli repression. Among the crowds of tourists in downtown Sausalito, they assembled, chanted and sang. “I got no problem with them” noted a police officer. On the bow of the 3:55 ferry back to San Francisco, they waved their flags, ending a very visible demonstration.
