Loud march from City Hall to Lake Merritt
Photos: Leon Kunstenaar / Pro Bono PhotoOn Friday afternoon, over 400 youths rallied in front of Oakland's City Hall at Frank Ogawa Plaza.
Adding their voices to the many recent protests against violence towards Asians, young Oaklanders, led by amplified slogans from the back of a truck, danced and marched. They detoured through part of Oakland's Chinese area, paused at the Asian cultural center and proceeded to rally at lake Merritt.
The march, masked and socially distanced, was entirely without incident. Well organized monitors managed cross traffic and water and aid was available. Oakland police was absent.
