Here’s link to video I took of nude activist Gypsy Taub of Berkeley and her husband Jaymz Smith getting married in San Francisco yesterday.

Taub has become known locally for her protests after the city banned public nudity. The wedding ended with the couple getting naked, a mariachi band and others joining them in dance. Then the police took them into custody and gave them citations. During the ceremony Taub said another citation had been dismissed earlier that day in court. The San Francisco Chronicle did a feature on her a few days before, which is available here. I shot the video for Ruptly RT News.

Demonstrations were held nationwide on Thursday, Dec. 5, 2013 to support higher pay for fast food workers. This demonstration shut down the McDonald’s at 14th and Jackson streets in Oakland, Calif. during lunch. Workers were asked to join, and some did. Protesters said the $8 or $9 per hour workers get is not enough. Recently the state minimum wage was approved for a rise to $10 an hour by 2016, but labor advocates say it should be $15 an hour.
