Most of you know by now of Oscar Grant, the young father who was murdered by BART police in Oakland last New Years. And that the cop who shot Oscar while he laid on the ground, Johannes Mehserle, is the 1st cop in CA history to
face a Murder Trial.
BUT did you know the Trial has been moved to LA in an apparent cover-up, and is starting on June 14th?!?! Well if not, now you do... LA it is OUR time to stand up & finally DEMAND Justice for Oscar!
On Monday, June 14th we will be gathering in MASS in front of the LA
Superior Courthouse in Downtown LA, in support of Oscar Grant¹s young
daughter, girlfriend, mother, family, friends & community in their uphill
battle for justice.
June 10-17, 2010, the week of the start of trial, has also been declared the
NATIONAL WEEK OF ART FOR OSCAR GRANT!!
Artists of all types (Visual Arts, Music, Poetry, Film, Theatre, Dance, etc), all capabilities, and all ages will be dedicating their art & events that week in a Nationwide show of support for Justice for Oscar Grant & All Stolen Lives.
Some are creating events specifically for Oscar. Others are simply
dedicating their events that are already happening to Oscar¹s story. More
are joining everyday. You should too!
If you would like to participate in the National Week of Art for Oscar Grant, please hit us back @: Art4OscarGrant@gmail.com
And pleeeease help us spread the word to more artists!
We are in the 4th Quarter of this battle for justice, let¹s make history
