More than 100 BART employees volunteered Saturday to help clean up the Oakland neighborhood vandalized by protestors this month.

Volunteers worked in the South of Broadway neighborhood, sweeping streets, pulling weeds, painting over graffiti and raking up leaves.

At least three protests against the killing of Oscar Grant turned violent including one Friday night. Demonstrators set fire to cars and dumpsters, and smashed the windows of local businesses.

More than 100 people were arrested in those three nights.
