Jay Leiderman and Eric Lindgren
On Thursday, 8 September 2011, several dozen activists gathered inside the Powell BART Station lobby in San Francisco to protest the fatal BART police shootings of Oscar Grant III and Charles Hill. The protesters, led by Krystof Cantor of No Justice No BART, slowly marched around the main lobby of the station, chanting “No justice, no peace, disband th e BART police!” and “How can they protect and serve us? BART police just make me nervous!” After only about 20 minutes, BART police got fed up. They encircled and arrested between 26 and 30 people, and shut down the station for two hours. Today, 12 September 2011, more protestors will assemble for what has been dubbed #OpBART5. Next Monday, #OpBART6 will ensue.
