BART PR campaign: employees "clean up after protestors"
check this shit! BART employees "clean up after protesters" today. they didn't just volunteer (or get paid) to help out Oakland in general, but it had to be about cleaning up after protesters. so you've got the helpful BART employees versus protesters here. and there was no "violence" last night, other than the cops beating on demonstrators, and there was nothing to clean up. the corporate media will eat up any old crap authorities shove their way.
BART employees clean up after protestors
Saturday, January 31, 2009 | 6:44 PM
OAKLAND, CA (KGO) -- More than 100 BART employees volunteered Saturday to help clean up the Oakland neighborhood vandalized by protestors this month.
Volunteers worked in the South of Broadway neighborhood, sweeping streets, pulling weeds, painting over graffiti and raking up leaves.
At least three protests against the killing of Oscar Grant turned violent including one Friday night. Demonstrators set fire to cars and dumpsters, and smashed the windows of local businesses.
