    Some people will butt in to anything to get their voice heard… the celebration was not for the anti-eviction crowd.

      Of course it doesn’t matter that soon we’ll be mourning the whole neighborhood if evictions continue at their current pace… No no, has nothing to do with it…

        David, Ellis evictions are running at under 200 a year for the entire city.

        So if they “continue at their current pace” the Mission will be 100% gentrified in about 500 years.

        Not appropriate at this event.
        Will the protestors start picketing at funerals next?

    Images of a little more Raza would have been nice.

    I painted the sign and yes, I mourn for all my friends who are being evicted, I feel for the people who have dedicated their life for art and culture in the Mission.
    Dia de muertos is a sacred day where we remember our departed ones, but also makes us reflect on our lives,I don’t see a problem bringing issues that affect the community, as long as it’s done in a quiet and respectful way.

      Does yelling through a loudspeaker during the parade qualify? Because I got stuck in front of that thing.

        i’m sorry to hear that, that’s too much, I experienced a more silent procession, except for the wonderful musicians playing while walking the procession

    The Dia de Muertos procession is about a quiet march with banda music, the loudspeakers can be too much. voices can be heard in a quiet mode too!
