On January 14th, Highlander and other local organizations held a candlelight vigil to protest the police killing of Oscar Grant III in Oakland, CA on New Years’ Eve.

Over 40 people attended the vigil, which was part of a National Day of Solidarity and Healing sponsored by The Gathering for Justice, The Coalition against Police Executions, and others across the country.

A report about the vigil, “Protesters in Krutch Park Honor Calif. Shooting Victim,” aired on WATE-TV that night. A transcript is available here. For background information on the vigil, click here. Information about the National Day of Solidarity and Healing is available here.
