Follow Up of the Day: When protestors attempted to rally against San Francisco’s BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) last Thursday and found their cell signals blacked out in BART stations, Internet vigilante group Anonymous got involved.
After Anonymous hacked BART and used its email list to advertise a new protest — now less about the shooting of Charles Hill by BART police and more about the censorship of a public demonstration — protestors rallied at BART stations last night.
Before the protest, a BART spokesman said that cell jamming was not a problem because BART platforms “are not a free speech zone.” Instead of blocking phones again, police shut down four stations as protestors marched down Market Street.
At least 120 people protested at the Civic Center station, some of them wearing Anon’s signature Guy Fawkes mask. One San Francisco costume shop even reported selling out of the masks.
Despite transit service disruptions and angry words exchanged between protesters and police, BART officials said no one was injured or arrested.
