"Free Tibet" activists in the Bay Area spent the day trying to call attention to what they say are repeated human rights abuses by China.The demonstrators marched across Golden Gate Bridge and afterwards, held a prayer service outside San Francisco's Chinese consulate and a vigil at Union Square. The group is boycotting the Tibetan New Year -- in memory of victims in a harsh Chinese crackdown against activists last year.
