SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- As expected, there were several protests throughout the week of APEC as world leaders converged on San Francisco to talk about how to better spur trade and economic growth across the Pacific region.
Perhaps the notable protest was on the Bay Bridge where demonstrators calling for a cease-fire in the war between Israel and Hamas shut down the roadway for several hours.
However, there were several others that occurred within San Francisco near the Moscone Center and at SFO for Chinese President Xi Jinping's arrival.
The majority of the demonstrations were peaceful with just a few incidents escalating into fights.
