Oakland Honors Martin Luther King Jr

Diverse rally for justice, equality - and Black Lives Matter

Photos by Luke Hauser

A diverse crowd gathered in Oakland's Fruitvale neighborhood to honor the memory of Martin Luther King Jr with calls for justice, equality - and a strong message of support for Black Lives Matter and campaigns to end police and state violence.

Many Reclaiming and kindred folks were involved in the march, continuing a burst of activism going back to the Occupy movement in 2011.

In particular, Solar Cross organized a "pagan corner" - see photo below.

Aztec dancers honored the four directions as the rally began.



A diverse crowd overflowed the plaza outside Fruitvale BART - a transit hub at the center of a changing (ie, gentrifying) neighborhood.

Although the march hadn't begun, the crowd (and the MLK puppet) steadily drifted eastward...

..gradually compacting the crowd in front of a makeshift stage.



Solar Cross put out a call for a pagan presence, and anchored a corner vigil during the pre-march rally.

Other pagans filtered through the crowd, remaining anonymous - until they spotted the RQ photographer.

Ready to march!
