Mayor Lee on Developments Related to August 26 Rally
“We are monitoring ongoing developments related to the August 26 rally, and we are prepared for any contingencies and spontaneous events. No permits have been requested or issued for Alamo Square this weekend, nor has the permit issued through the Golden Gate National Recreation Area been withdrawn.
Throughout the course of this week, we have made it clear that the public safety of San Francisco residents and visitors is our top priority. Our full contingent of public safety professionals is ready to protect our San Francisco neighborhoods.
Today, we showed the world what peace and unity looks like. We stood together and stated resoundingly that San Francisco is a city of love and compassion. We know our message was heard.”
