A small group of protesters blocked the San Francisco Pride Parade for just under an hour on Sunday, over police presence and corporate involvement in Pride festivities.
Around 11 a.m., about a dozen people sat down on Market Street near 6th Street. The parade paused about a half block away while police surrounded the protesters.
A police spokesperson said the protesters "broke down barricades and threw water bottles at officers." Two people were arrested and charged with battery on a police officer, resisting arrest and interfering with a parade route, and one officer sustained non-life threatening injuries.
"Police do not make us feel safe," said one of the protesters on a megaphone, eliciting cheers from the parade watchers standing along the street. The protest was organized by Abolish ICE SF and Gay Shame, an organization that has been pushing for the exclusion of police from Pride.
