Protest March in SSF on Thursday, June 4th 11am-3pm

Thank you to the City of South San Francisco who partnered with the Chamber on providing our businesses the following information;


To our South San Francisco Business Community,


We have become aware of a planned demonstration/walk in the wake of the tragic death of George Floyd in Minneapolis. This demonstration is scheduled for this Thursday, June 4th, from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. and will start at City Hall, 400 Grand Avenue, and end at the Municipal Services Building, 33 Arroyo Drive, in South San Francisco. Peaceful demonstrations took place in Menlo Park and San Carlos yesterday. Additional demonstrations are also planned to take place in Redwood City today at 4:00 p.m., and East Palo Alto and San Mateo on Wednesday, June 3.


We expect Thursday’s demonstration to be peaceful and respectful. However, as a precaution, we ask local businesses to plan accordingly, such as removing any outdoor furniture and/or boarding windows.


We fully support peaceful protesting and those that wish to express their voices and feelings in a peaceful and lawful manner. However, we will not tolerate violence, property destruction, and criminal behavior in South San Francisco. We are fully committed to protecting our citizens, property, and businesses from those who harm our community. Those that violate the law will be sought out and held accountable for their actions through the criminal justice system.


To increase safety for demonstrators, law enforcement, and the South San Francisco community, the South San Francisco Police Department is actively preparing for this event, and will have a strong presence for safety and to allow for a peaceful and respectful demonstration.


Yesterday, Chief Azzopardi released a community message addressing the tragic death of George Floyd. His full message can be found here!

    As a parent I am concerned. I am all for a peaceful protest. I am heartbroken at what happened to George Floyd. I do live near the police department and my kids are doing online college. Are the police going to make sure that nobody except for residents go into the neighborhood near the police department? I do not want to come home from work and find that someone has destroyed my property or put my kid’s lives in danger.

    AntiFa will be in San Mateo County Thurs, especially South San Francisco. They plan on setting fires to the pharmacies, looting the malls. They plan to kill ppl. Police have ordered bricks for them to use. It’s very bad. No police protection. No military protection. The local govt has known about it since Sat. Local store owners have their guns ready. Many ppl have weapons ready. If you have ever seen the movie Saw. Well, I’m Jigsaw. I have to protect my family. It’s not liberals vs conservatives, like you think. It’s elites vs non-elites. Trump could have sent the real military in via the Insurrection Act a few days ago, and he didn’t. So, that proves it’s haves vs have nots. They want us to burn our cities down and perish. The Dems and Republicans both do. Stay safe and prepare! God bless 🙏🙏 you.
