OAKLAND, Calif. (KGO) -- Supporters of the "Black Lives" movement packed a BART board meeting Thursday night.

Some were kicked out for disrupting the meeting.

The protesters have a list of complaints, but at the top is for BART police to drop all charges against 14 demonstrators who were arrested the day after Thanksgiving for chaining themselves to a BART car to disrupt holiday shopping and travel.

The so-called Black Friday 14 was protesting police shootings of black men.

A BART board member says she will introduce a resolution next week urging the district attorney to drop all charges.
