Black Friday 14 Protest Ends With 14 Arrests

14 religious leaders were arrested at an Oakland courthouse where they were protesting the prosecution of 14 Black Lives Matters activists. The interfaith protesters held a sit-in at the courthouse lobby, where they called on District Attorney Nancy O’Malley to drop criminal charges against the “Black Friday 14” who blocked a BART train last November. Christopher Martinez files this report from Oakland.
