A short peaceful Black Lives Matter march ended at Oakland police headquarters on Monday evening after winding through downtown.

Several Oakland police cruisers hung back as the marchers headed down Adeline Street to 7th Street and Broadway, and a few California Highway Patrol cruisers were also on hand, but there was no police presence at the rally.

The protest, organized by The Coalition to Defend Affirmative Action, Integration and Immigrant Rights and Fight For Equality by Any Means Necessary, (BAMN) drew about 80 supporters. Several people spoke as the sun set behind the police department and drivers honked their horns in support as they passed by.

The small group reflected the diversity of Oakland and called for police accountability as they held signs and listened to speakers. Most wore masks due to the recent spike of the Covid-19 pandemic.
