Power concedes nothing without a demand. It's time to take the gloves off. Its time to take this struggle to the doorstep of "Power".

No Justice No BART is taking the protest to Rockridge BART, a chic-chic yuppie shopping playground with boutique shops and fancy restaurants.

We are going to try to close this station down. To do this, we need a large turnout! Come ready to face off with the BART police for two hours and shut down the station. Justice is not a spectator sport!

Tell your friends! And join us on facebook: http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=61145006547

Please print the Service Disruption Advisory Flyer and distribute it on BART!!!

*********************************************************
DEMAND JUSTICE FOR OSCAR GRANT !!!
....THIS THURSDAY, MARCH 19th, 4 PM
............AT ROCKRIDGE BART
*********************************************************

This will be the next protest in our campaign of
actions targetting BART. We will attempt to shutdown
the Rockridge BART station with this protest.

Our immediate demands include that BART fire the Chief of Police and
the General Manager for covering up Oscar's murder, and that BART
Officer Tony Pirone be fired and charged for punching Oscar in the face
and holding him down while he was shot. We also want BART to
investigate the other officers present that day and to make changes to
ensure this never happens again.

SHOW UP EARLY or use the bus or some alternative
means of transport. AC transit lines 7, 51, and 59
stop at the Rockridge BART.

ABOUT OUR CAMPAIGN
===================
No Justice No BART is a campaign of protest actions targeting BART in order to advance community demands in the wake of the police murder of Oscar Grant. Until these demands are met we will hold weekly actions that disrupt BART's ability to conduct business as usual. Here's how it works:
- EVERY WEEK we distribute flyers on BART and at BART stations to let the public know about Oscar, about the organizing, about the next action, so they can prepare and/or participate.
- EVERY WEEK we mobilize for one action at or in a BART Station.
- EVERY WEEKEND we have a public meeting to discuss and determine the course of future actions.
- WE DON'T STOP until our demands are met.
