My friend Sima sent me the above photo from the gathering to protest the unprovoked murder of 22 year old Oscar Grant in Oakland, CA.

In case you can't read the sign, it says "Justice for Oscar Grant! Justice for Gaza! End Government Sponsored Murder in the Ghettos of Oakland and Palestine."

If you can stomach the horror, here is the video of the police officer shooting Oscar Grant in the back at point blank range. As you will be able to see, Grant was on the ground, on his stomach, in a position of surrender.

For the massacres in the Gaza ghetto, there are too many ghastly images to post, but this video posted in an earlier comment section, is another sad example of government sponsored, unaccountable murder of innocent civilians.
