The revolution will be Instagramed, as pictured here by Jen Ackrill, and nowhere else does that sentiment ring truer than in the heart of the city's Mission District. A May Day demonstration at 16th and Mission currently underway has effectively shut down the intersection today. Traffic is being diverted. If you plan on driving in the area... don't.

We will update as soon as we know more.

UPDATE: Looks like the intersection has reopened, with the peaceful yet bombastic gathering moving downtown.
