Add comment on:BART Action Disrupts Trains with "No Justice, No Rush", San Francisco: Photos (1 of 2)
A spirited demonstration was held in San Francisco BART stations to push for justice and accountability in the murder of Oscar Grant. The action was called specifically to advance three demands: fire BART police officer Tony Pirone, charge Tony Pirone, and disband the entire BART police department. Over a hundred people showed up for the 3:30pm meet-up at Embarcadero station platform; around two hundred were present by the time the action itself was scheduled to begin at 4pm. [Pictured below is an activist handing out fliers in the days prior to warn BART passengers of the impending disruption; BART itself did nothing to warn riders other than a short press release posted on its website within hours of the action.]
