BART warns passengers of possible protests at San Francisco stations Thursday 

BART passengers are being warned of a possible service shutdown due to protesting at San Francisco stations.

“Please be advised that protesters may attempt to disrupt train service during August commute periods beginning as early as Thursday,” the transit agency said in a statement.

Last month, a group of protesters seeking to paralyze BART achieved their goal by holding open train doors, climbing atop a rail car and ultimately forcing police to shut down three stations during the height of the evening commute.

The protests have been in reaction to the July 3 police-involved shooting death of Charles Hill at Civic Center Station and the 2009 fatal shooting of Oscar Grant III at Fruitvale Station.
