Over a thousand people converged at 14th and Broadway in Oakland after the verdict came down in the Oscar Grant case on July 9. Protestors came despite a climate of fear created by the corporate media and local officials. The protest continued for hours, surrounded by a huge and repressive police presence. Over 80 people were arrested. Significant demonstrations against the lenient verdict happened in many other cities including, Los Angeles, San Diego, Fresno and Portland Oregon.
