Thousands of people marched Sunday in San Francisco, protesting the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation forum's gathering in the city this week, along with a host of other issues ranging from the Israel-Hamas war to conflicts in Myanmar, the Philippines and other countries.

Demonstrators gathered at Harry Bridges Plaza on the Embarcadero at midday before proceeding down Market Street and eventually near the Moscone Center, where the APEC meetings and the related APEC CEO Summit will take place.

Here are a selection of photos from the demonstration:
