Oscar Grant Protest held in Oakland on Eve of Mehserle Trial

On the eve of the historic trial of former BART officer Johannes Mehserle in the murder of Oscar Grant, activists held a vigil at Alameda County Superior Court. The case was moved to Los Angeles County, after Mehserle's defense successfully argued his client could not receive a fair trial in Alameda County.

The shooting, which occurred over 15 months ago, sparked outrage in the Bay Area with mass protests. Protests have taken place throughout the state, on various college campuses, and will likely be ramping up in Los Angeles as Bay Area activists have connected with Los Angeles activists.
