This article states that more than 25,000 anti-war protesters marched from San Francisco's Civic Center Plaza to a rally in Dolores Park on October 27, 2007 led by a band of Native American drummers pounding a beat while protesters shouted "No More War." Their banners and placards demanded an end to the U.S.-led war and occupation of Iraq and bemoaned the $330 million per day cost of the war.
