PROTEST: Shut down the Murderous, Inept, Corrupt BART Police Department
Date Monday July 11
Time 4:30 PM - 7:00 PM
Location Details
Civic Center BART - In the station. On the Platform.
San Francisco, California
Event Type Protest
### See for updated information on the July 11 demonstration ###

Last Sunday night, BART Police attacked and essentially executed a man so drunk he could barely stand! 2 BART Police officers responded to a call of a homeless man with an open container of alcohol described as stumbling and wobbling around civic center platform. Within 60 seconds of getting out of the train and onto the platform, these cops managed to shoot the man 3 times in the chest and kill him.

The BART police chief is... claiming he is 'comfortable' with this behavior. There is video that they are refusing to release. There are witnesses that contradict the police story (the lies they are using to try to cover this up). History does repeat itself, until we get angry enough to do something about it.

Join us to THIS MONDAY. ON THE CIVIC CENTER PLATFORM (yes, in the BART!). We will participate in a collective act of civil disobedience to demand:

1. The BART Board of Directors must shut down the corrupt, inept, disgraceful, and murderous BART police department, PERMANENTLY AND TOTALLY.

2. Both officers must be fired, and we demand an independent, PUBLIC investigation of this killing, and all applicable charges filed and prosecuted against the killers.

BART Action Disrupts Trains with "No Justice, No Rush" in San Francisco

We learned a lot doing BART actions around Oscar Grant, especially the April 2010 action at Embarcadero and the basic idea is to hit the ground running, pick up where we left off, and bring stronger pressure to bear through better and bigger actions. The goal is still to get rid of the BART police department, to disband it entirely. Click to download this flier and share it everywhere. Get the word out and get ready!

I think that this man deserves an unpermitted march with no boundaries just as much as Oscar Grant!
