The battle for justice for Oscar Grant is in high gear as the murdering cop goes to trial. At this moment it is crucial that people are mobilized to stand against systemic police brutality and this cold-blooded murder. Remember, it was only AFTER a mass outpouring of righteous protest took to the streets in Oakland that Mehserle was even charged in the first place! For an update on the trial, (written before Mehserle was set to be charged with murder, but still very relevant analysis of the case) see recent article in Revolution Newspaper: "A Critical Moment in the Battle" at http://www.revcom.us/a/167/Justice_Grant-en.html
As part of that protest in response to the murder of Oscar Grant, David, a young revolutionary, for speaking the truth and standing on the right side of justice, was arrested and wrongly accused of two felonies. A passionate and dedicated leader, he is one of only 4 out of 120+ arrested that night who have been targeted with serious offenses stemming from their arrests that night. This is not just an attack on David, but an attack on all those seeking justice for Oscar Grant, an attack on the revolutionary movement, and an attack on all those who dream of a radically different and far better world!
