Second No Justice No BART Demo Hit Rockridge BART Station
Mon Mar 23 2009 (Updated 03/28/09)
No Justice No BART Aims to Shut Down MacArthur BART on April 2nd
No Justice No BART (NJNB) are holding a series of disruptive actions with the goal of seeking full accountability for those responsible for the abuse and murder of Oscar Grant, including those involved in the subsequent cover-up attempts. After successfully blocking the fare gates at Fruitvale BART in their first demo, NJNB chose the BART station in the upscale Rockridge neighborhood for their second demonstration on March 19th. At Rockridge though, BART's own riot police, or "Tactical Team," didn't wait for the protest to start — they were already set up with chemical and other weapons ready to go and barricades around the escalators before the protest even began. Despite not having completely shut down a station to date, NJNB has been doing community outreach in order to increase the size of the demos at BART stations around the Bay Area until justice for Oscar Grant is reached. NJNB's next action will be at MacArthur BART in Oakland, Thursday, April 2nd at 4pm.
