BART Protest Leads To Temporary Station Closures
SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — Dozens of protesters gathered on Bay Area Rapid Transit platforms in downtown San Francisco on Monday evening in response to the agency’s interruption of cellphone service to prevent another protest last week.
About 50 protesters stood on the Civic Center station platform at the foot of an escalator chanting “no justice, no peace.” They also swarmed a BART train, trying to prevent its departure, prompting the station’s temporary closure.
At various points, BART also closed the Powell Street, Montgomery Street and Embarcadero stations temporarily due to what agency spokesman Jim Allison termed “dangerous overcrowding.”
The hacker protest group “Anonymous” apparently organized the protest, and was also taking credit for a cyber attack that resulted in the release of personal information for at least 2,400 users of the agency’s myBART.org website over the weekend.
