Occupy SFSU photographer/librarian Matthew Van Saun’s photo essay on the diversity of the Occupy San Francisco movement. Check it out at the link below.
Even though Occupy San Francisco’s camp at Justin Herman Plaza was removed this month, it has not disappeared. I believe one of the reasons is the diversity of the movement in San Francisco.
