A press conference held at the Frutivale BART station in Oakland on June 1st announced the call to action.

The Coalition for Justice for Oscar Grant has called for two protests in Oakland the day Mehserle is released. The first is at Fruitvale BART at 3:00 pm and then at Broadway & 14th Street at 5:30 pm. Mehserle was sentenced to only two years and was given credit for time served prior to the conviction and since.
