SOPA Demonstration in San Francisco

This Wednesday, Silicon Valley legend and top angel investor Ron Conway joined the tech community of San Francisco in a protest against SOPA. The mob had gathered outside of San Francisco city hall to show their dissatisfaction with latest development in the SOPA controversy. Here is a short clip of the speech Conway gave.

The protesters were also joined by San Francisco’s Director of Innovation, Jay Nath, who took the lowtech stage consisting of a box and a 15-watt guitar amp with a letter from mayor Ed Lee. In this letter, Lee stated that San Francisco couldn’t support SOPA in it’s current version.

All in all, over 100 people was present this cold California afternoon to show their support, making this demo one of the largest internet/tech demos I’ve seen for a long time – one can only guess if we’ll have more of its kind the coming years.
