Demonstration at Lawrence Livermore Laboratories, about 30 miles east of San Francisco, protesting their management and promotion of the U.S. first strike nuclear war capacity, 1982.
Anti-war movements have a long and important history in San Francisco, from Anti-Imperialist League agitation against the annexation of the Philippines at the turn of the 20th century, to anti-war agitation during WWI, pacifist activism in WWII, strong resistance to the Vietnam War, Reagan's wars in Central America, both Bush wars in Iraq and the latter in Afghanistan/Pakistan.

Other activists challenged the corporations that were once headquartered in San Francisco for their deep involvement in the business and politics of war.
