Town Hall Featuring Minister Louis Farrakhan, Oakland, 2/17/09: photos and audio
A standing room only crowd gathered at Olivet Missionary Baptist Church for a town hall meeting to continue rallying and organizing for justice for Oscar Grant III, justice for other victims of racist police abuse, justice for residents of San Francisco's Bayview-Hunters Point neighborhood, and against the street violence in Oakland that claims over 100 lives a year. The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan was the featured speaker tonight. The next big event will be the "Caravan for Justice: Californians United to Overturn Unjust Laws" heading to Sacramento this Thursday morning, February 19th.
Pastor Gordon Humphreys of Olivet was first to speak. Apologies for missing first couple minutes and later small gap in audio here.
Those interested in participating in the Caravan for Justice ride to Sacramento can gather Thursday at 8:00am at the Olivet Church at 807 27th Street in Oakland. Other caravans will be leaving from Richmond, San Francisco, and East Palo Alto. Details: http://www.indybay.org/newsitems/2009/02/17/18571334.php
