Hundreds Demand Justice for Oscar Grant Outside L.A. Courthouse

On June 14th, hundreds of people demonstrated outside the Los Angeles Superior Court at 210 W. Temple to demand justice for Oscar Grant. Angelenos made it very clear that the significance of the trial of Johannes Mehserle is bigger than just Oscar Grant's case, and that police brutality is part of systematic oppression. Connections were drawn between police killings in Los Angeles and the Bay Area, as well as in New York.

And not forgetting the six month long uprising, which began on June 14, 2006, loud cries of "Oaxaca Vive Vive, La Lucha Sigue Sigue" rang through the downtown streets.

Text from a flyer handed out on Monday, June 14 at the Los Angeles Superior Court:

Justice For Oscar Grant
Murdered by BART Officer Johannes Mehserle


Oscar Grant's young life was ripped away from his daughter and family on New Year's Day, 2009. He was shot execution style with his face to the ground by Oakland BART officer Johannes Mehserle. Oscar's murder was filmed & posted on youtube.com which ignited firestorms of protest in Oakland. Mehserle's trial was moved to L.A., escaping Oakland's outraged community. L.A. judge Perry, who covered up the Rampart/CRASH scandal, is assigned the case.

Mehserle is the 1st cop in California to be tried for on-duty murder. We cannot allow another killer cop to be released back in the community. Mehserle must be convicted for the cold blooded murder of Oscar Grant.

Victories so far:

- Officer Mehserle on Trial for Murder!
- Officers Pirone & Domenici both Fired!
- BART PD Chief forced to Resign!
- Alameda County DA forced to Resign!
- More coming every day... join us & help create history!


Points of Unity

* Justice for Oscar Grant, Killer cop Mehserle must be jailed for murder.

* This is bigger than just Oscar Grant's case, Police brutality is systematic oppression.
