Students from San Francisco's Arts and Technology High School read poetry they wrote as a plea for justice for Oscar Grant.

They gathered at Fruitvale's BART station where Oscar Grant was killed.

Students chanted "We are all Oscar Grant" and said they're disappointed that no African-Americans are on the jury that will decide Johannes Mehserle's fate.

The students ABC7 spoke to also say they still think the trial should have been held in Oakland.
