Oakland Transforms as it Prepares for Street Rebellions
by Jesse Strauss
The trial of Johannes Mehserle, the cop who killed Oscar Grant, has re-awoken a rebellious campaign against police brutality in Oakland, California. Throughout the past week, graffiti has appeared all over Oakland. Around Lake Merritt, powerful messages have shown up around the walkway; from “BART Targets Black People” to “Justice for Oscar Grant III or Else,” it was one of the first major public awareness campaigns to remind Oakland, as well as the law enforcement community, that the city will not rest while Johannes Mehserle’s trial comes to a close.
