Thousands Rally in San Francisco for Charlie Hebdo and Freedom of Speech

Thousands of people gathered in San Francisco on Sunday to remember the victims of the terror attacks on the Charlie Hebdo offices and the Hyper Casher kosher market in Paris — and to make a stand for Freedom of Speech.

The rally took place at San Francisco's Civic Center, in front of City Hall. Many people held up copies of Charlie Hebdo Mohammed cartoons to show they would not be bullied into silence by terror.

At 2:30 there was a moment of silence as the crowd — probably numbering somewhere between one and two thousand – memorialized the victims without the need for fiery speeches.
