Wednesday Feb 18th, 2009 2:08 AM
A standing room only crowd gathered at Olivet Missionary Baptist Church for a town hall meeting to continue rallying and organizing for justice for Oscar Grant III, justice for other victims of racist police abuse, justice for residents of San Francisco's Bayview-Hunters Point neighborhood, and against the street violence in Oakland that claims over 100 lives a year. The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan was the featured speaker tonight. The next big event will be the "Caravan for Justice: Californians United to Overturn Unjust Laws" heading to Sacramento this Thursday morning, February 19th.
