Justice for Oscar Grant

Family and friends said goodbye to the 22-year-old father who was shot on the BART platform in Oakland, California New Years Day.

Caution: some distressing footage!


“We won’t rest until we have honoured Oscar Grant.” Those were the words of Dereca Blackmon, one of the principal organizers of a rally and march of nearly 1,000 people on 7th January 2009, to protest the killing of 22-year-old Oscar Grant.

Oscar was shot in the back and killed by a US police officer as he was restrained face down of the floor of a subway station on New Years Day 2009.
