PHOTOS: Demonstrators against the Afghanistan war join Occupy SF

Several hundred protesters against the Afghanistan war rallied alongside Occupy SF protesters on Friday to mark the 10th anniversary of the war.

The two groups of demonstrators each held their own events until they merged in front of the Federal Reserve Bank where they occupied the street for about an hour and a half.
