Saturday's "Justice for Oscar Grant! Oakland City Hall Rally" was met by a small army of police determined to shut down any demonstration by those demanding accountability for police abuses. Nevertheless, over 50 people braved their way past the military gauntlet to attend. Demonstrators moved from the designated meeting location in front of City Hall to the BART entrance across Broadway, knowing that BART would shut down the 12th Street station in response. Surrounded by cops and noting that "shit will go down on our schedule, it doesn't have to go down on theirs," speakers proceeded to issue demands of police and city officials.
