Oscar Grant Memorial: March From Downtown Oakland to Fruitvale Bart Station

by Alex Darocy (alex [at] alexdarocy.com)
On January 1, several hundred demonstrators, as well as friends and supporters of the family of Oscar Grant and other victims of police repression, marched from downtown Oakland to the Fruitvale BART station where a rally was held. The annual march and rally is to show that Oscar Grant, who was murdered by BART police officer Johannes Mehserle in 2009, is gone but not forgotten, and to also denounce police violence everywhere, but especially in Oakland where the problem is particularly bad. The sponsors of the event were the Oscar Grant Committee, Occupy Oakland, and Bring the Ruckus.
