Occupy, Anonymous Plan to Screw Your Afternoon Commute
|Occupy Oakland via Twitter|
The two anti-government groups are planning a joint action at Fruitvale BART station at 5 p.m. today, which means you East Bay-bound folks best find another way home.
Anonymous says it's been way too long since its last weekly protest at BART, aimed to draw attention to the transit agency's heavy-handed police force. However, the only thing those weekly protests drew last year was a lot of anger from tired commuters.
In a recent letter to BART, the group again calls the agency's police force "unprofessional and violent."So one year later, here's what Anonymous has to say to the BART police:
But because a letter never suffices, Anonymous and Occupiers say they will be there to tell you in person exactly how they feel. And for the record, today's protest will also mark the first anniversary of Anonymous' much-dreaded weekly BART protests, where protesters packed stations week after week, holding up trains, pissing off commuters, and generally accomplishing nothing.
See you tonight for this birthday bash -- no gifts, please.
