Boycott BART New Year's Eve and Day for Oscar Grant
Boycott Bart New Year's Eve & Day, in memory of Oscar Grant.
Some of us will never forget that tragic morning on January 1, 2009 at 2:15 a.m. when unarmed Bart passenger Oscar Grant was killed by former Bart police officer Johannes Mehserle. I'm not asking for anyone to march, just simply opting out of riding Bart. To send a message to Bart & "The Justice System" to let Oscar and his family know gone but never forgotten. In memory of Oscar Grant I’m asking everyone to participate in a two day boycott of B
art. IF POSSIBLE to find other means of transportation to your New Year’s destination. Other transits agencies will be running all night as well, check 511.org.
"There may be times when we are powerless to prevent injustice, but there must never be a time when we fail to protest." -Elie Wiesel
Anyway, New Year's was a day of dread for our ancestors who were auctioned on this day. We should pray for justice on this day, for the ancestors, the living and the yet unborn.--Marvin X
