Add comment on:Anonymous OpBART Protest Shuts Down Four SF BART Stations & More, 8/15/11: photos, 1 of 2
In "remembrance [of] the blood that is on the hands of the BART police" for killing Charles Hill, Oscar Grant, and others -- and to "stand up for your rights and those of your fellow citizens" after BART cut mobile phone service in underground stations on August 11th in an attempt to disrupt a rumored protest -- Anonymous promised retaliation through an "Operation BART" campaign. Anonymous threatened to "remove" BART's website, called for flooding BART's communications systems with faxes, emails and calls, and scheduled a peaceful protest at Civic Center station. On August 14th, the myBART.org website was hacked. On August 15th, a protest was held in San Francisco that shut down four downtown BART stations during the evening commute by simply walking from one station to the next. MUNI service was disrupted as well in the stations that BART chose to close rather than face protesters. Street-level buses and traffic were also effected during the march from Civic Center to Embarcadero.
