Hundreds of protesters touting various causes gathered this evening a block away from a mansion in San Francisco's Pacific Heights neighborhood where President Barack Obama is set to attend a Democratic fundraiser later tonight.

The crowd filled the intersection of Pacific and Baker streets, a block away from the home of philanthropists Ann and Gordon Getty, who are hosting Obama in a fundraising dinner for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.

The largest group of protesters were shouting in opposition to Keystone XL, a proposed pipeline across the Midwest that would transport oil from tar sands in Canada.


One anti-war group came carrying a large mock drone to show their opposition to the use of the unmanned aircraft in war zones. "Thousands of people have already been murdered by these drones," said Stephanie Tang, an organizer with the group World Can't Wait. "It's mass murder from the skies."

At least people are empowered, and using their right.
