While she now apparently supports AB312, which would impose civilian police review on BART, in 2007 Fiona Ma stood with police unions to prevent any changes to the California Police Bill of Rights that might ensure more public accountability.
Their Preliminary Hearing starts on Monday, June 8th. Supporters are asked to show up at 8am and demonstrate at 850 Bryant Street, San Francisco.

The fourth Caravan is expected to include speakers and buses from as far south as Los Angeles.
