Where: Oakland City Hall, 1 Frank H. Ogawa Plaza, Oakland (MAP)
What: Rally for justice for Oscar Grant
Oscar Grant was shot in the back by BART Policeman Johannes Mehserle while lying face down on a BART platform. Mehserle will be sentenced on November 5th and we need to get out on the 23rd to show the sentencing judge that we mean business. It took video evidence AND a massive outpouring in downtown Oakland to even get the District Attorney to charge Mehserle. It will take people in the streets to get the killer cop jailed.Following the rally, at 4:00pm, several Peace and Freedom candidates for statewide office will participate in a candidate forum in North Oakland.
