Protest BART's attack on free speech and civil rights!
Date Monday August 15
Time 5:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Location Details
Civic Center BART Station (#OpBART #muBARTek)
Civic Center
San Francisco, CA
Event Type Protest
Organizer/AuthorNo Justice No BART

We (No Justice No BART) encourage people to mobilize alongside Anonymous in defense of civil liberties and against the creeping police state. Stand up for your rights and those of your fellow citizens.

[at the present time, we assume this protest will be staged on the platform at Civic Center]

This 5 pm protest has been called by the hacker collective Anonymous, and is NOT explicitly organized by No Justice No BART. People are being encouraged to wear “blood” stained shirts to symbolize the blood that is on the hands of the BART police. When we mobilize against any instance of police brutality, we are seeking justice for all victims of police repression. We hope this protest will underscore that the suppression of civil liberties is a form of police repression targeted at our entire society .

Specific plans for this demo remain elusive, but it appears planned to test the lengths to which the BART Police and BART administration are prepared to go to suppress our first amendment rights. We encourage everyone to respect the tone of this protest by having a camera ready, bringing signs, and flyers, and anything that facilitates freedom of expression and assembly. We encourage all participants to learn your rights ahead of time, and be prepared to exercise them (expect BART police to lie to you about what they are).

the bus/BART ppl are very nazi - no protests or cameras inside the station itself

Watch out for these guys - they may try and make it violent, or start illegal acts. Keep it classy, pls. We don't want Anons getting butchered. Stay SAFE! Stay Peaceful. PLS PLS PLS. ♥

1. Do not inconvenience commuters on their way HOME from work, inconvenience then on their way TO work. If everyone is late due to protest, then employers will have a much harder time making everyone stay late. If people are made to be late returning home after work to their families, then they will blame protesters and side with BART.

2. Do not identify yourselves as protesters with T-shirts or signs, that only makes it easier to get arrested and taken out.

3. The way to send BART a message is for people to go down to the platforms, and as trains stop at the downtown SF stations, to continuously board and exit the same car repeatedly, or by moving between cars if necessary, creating the appearance of normal bustling commuters while taking much much longer than they would. Increasing the dwell times only slightly on a few trains at a few stations will throw the whole system off schedule.

4. Lather, rinse, repeat.
