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.

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.

This was a crime and tragedy against innocent life not only in United States, but in all over the world. Here in my country we are all shocked by this crime. I believe that peoples in your country fight for justice about this cops crime. The justice don´t can suport something like that. Absurd! It was a really shame from United States Police.
