Oscar Grant will never be forgotten! Events in Oakland, CA.

Jan 1, 2010. On the first anniversary of the murder of Oscar Grant, two important events took place in Oakland including a vigil at the Fruitvale BART Station and a cultural gathering at the Humanist Hall.

On Friday, January 1, 2010, two important events took place in Oakland CA to commemorate the savage murder of Oscar Grant by BART police. The first was a vigil for hope and peace, organized by Oscar's family, the community coalition dedicated to his memory and the Faith Community. Baptist, Christian and the Nation of Islam clergy all spoke in the memory of Oscar and for a future of hope, justice and action.

In the evening the community gathered at the Humanist Hall on 27th in Oakland for an artistic, cultural and inspirational night dedicated to networking and education. Many poets, artists, activists, allies and family gathered. Initially, the Oakland Police tried to stop this event due to lack of a permit. Although the event took place on private property, the OPD insisted it was a "special circumstance" event and needed a permit. In the end, JUSTICE prevailed and the event went on, building the movement stronger in spite of the struggles we face.

The coalition is looking for people who would like to work on the campaign for Oscar Grant in upcoming weeks. They will need people both in the Bay Area and in LA. Even if you have an hour a week to dedicate, it can help immensely. Send an email to: generalassembly [at] anomie.info for more information.
