Title: Protest BART's attack on free speech and civil rights!
START DATE: Monday August 15
TIME: 5:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Location Details:
Civic Center BART Station (#OpBART #muBARTek)
Civic Center
San Francisco, CA
Event Type: Protest

We (No Justice No BART) encourage people to mobilize alongside Anonymous in defense of civil liberties and against the creeping police state. Stand up for your rights and those of your fellow citizens.

[at the present time, we assume this protest will be staged on the platform at Civic Center]

This 5 pm protest has been called by the hacker collective Anonymous, and is NOT explicitly organized by No Justice No BART. People are being encouraged to wear “blood” stained shirts to symbolize the blood that is on the hands of the BART police. When we mobilize against any instance of police brutality, we are seeking justice for all victims of police repression. We hope this protest will underscore that the suppression of civil liberties is a form of police repression targeted at our entire society .

Specific plans for this demo remain elusive, but it appears planned to test the lengths to which the BART Police and BART administration are prepared to go to suppress our first amendment rights. We encourage everyone to respect the tone of this protest by having a camera ready, bringing signs, and flyers, and anything that facilitates freedom of expression and assembly. We encourage all participants to learn your rights ahead of time, and be prepared to exercise them (expect BART police to lie to you about what they are).

the bus/BART ppl are very nazi - no protests or cameras inside the station itself

Watch out for these guys - they may try and make it violent, or start illegal acts. Keep it classy, pls. We don't want Anons getting butchered. Stay SAFE! Stay Peaceful. PLS PLS PLS. ♥
