Over a hundred people marched through Hayward from the BART Station to City Hall on what would of been Oscar Grant's 23rd birthday on February 27th, 2009. Oscar Grant III was shot in the back and killed on New Years Eve by BART police officer Johannes Mehserle, who is now free on bail. A large outpouring of friends and family rallied in front of Hayward City Hall after the march. Family members called for justice for all those murdered by police and to keep the movement going. There was a large police presence throughout. Streets were blocked off and the march was accompanied by motorcycle police. When the crowd reached City Hall, they were virtually surrounded by police with helicopters overhead.
