Hundreds of people in the Bay Area held a rally in San Francisco Saturday in support of the anti-government movement in Ukraine.

They celebrated the news of the president's impeachment at San Francisco's City Hall, and they called on the international community to make sure there is a peaceful resolution during the transition.
