The vigil will be at 7pm on Wednesday January 14th at Leimert Park. Hope to see you there!
Here are more details:
Peaceful Candlelight Vigil TOMORROW (Wed. 1/14) from 7-9pm
in Leimert Park
as part of the National Day of Action to demand justice for Oscar Grant.
As you may know, a police officer shot and killed Oscar early in the morning on New Year's Day.
You can watch this YouTube video that tells the story in all its gory details: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IKy-WSZMklc
Hundreds of people across the country will be gathering tomorrow to bring more awareness to this senseless killing and to demand:
1. Criminal prosecution of ALL officers involved in the incident at the Fruitvale BART station that resulted in the death of Oscar Grant III,
2. BART to hand over this investigation to the CA State Department of Justice,
3. BART to provide the community a forum to voice their concerns, and
4. BART to present to the public a policy that will ensure that this will never happen again.
5. You can help by forwarding this email far and wide or helping to spread the word about the vigil, showing up at the vigil, or getting your group to join the diverse coalition that is coming together.
Spread the word!
