Anonymous, Occupy protest at Fruitvale BART station

OAKLAND, Calif.

The group sees the cellphone shutdown as a violation of their right to free speech. BART called it a public safety tactic, trying to dissuade those protesters from organizing as the protesters threatened to shut down BART service during the evening commute.

Along their way to BART headquarters, those marchers say that they plan to stop off at a vacant former library that is also being occupied with another protest.
