Oscar Grant March from Fruitvale BART, Oakland, 1/7/09: photos
A few hundred marchers leave the rally for Oscar Grant at Fruitvale BART and stream onto International Blvd headed for downtown about 5:15pm.
These photos end before the march approached Lake Merritt BART station. Not long after passing Lake Merritt BART, a goup of people attacked a police car, riot cops released tear gas on the march, and hours of stand-offs with police, and cat and mouse through the streets of Oakland, began.
Short video clips from the march can be found at http://www.indybay.org/newsitems/2009/01/08/18560069.php.
Dumpsters were still safe at this point in the night.
The march had thinned by about half by the time it reached Lake Merritt. About 2/3 of those still marching can be seen in this view. The rest were further along.
