For the sixth straight Monday, protesters gathered at Civic Center in San Francisco to protest against BART.

Scroll down to see live coverage from the protest, including transit impacts.

The protest Monday evening was smaller than the previous ones, with roughly a half-dozen protesters gathering. The group rode trains in downtown San Francisco and handed out literature. There were no service disruptions because of the event.

The Bay Area transit agency has been under siege since the July 3 shooting of Charles Hill by the transit agency’s police officers. Weekly protests started last month, following the agency’s decision to shut down cellphone service to quash a planned event.

The activist group Anonymous has said it will continue to organize weekly protests, which have at times been disruptive to commuters.

While the agency explores way to contain the protesters, some members at BART think the events may be finally losing traction. Last Monday, only two dozen members showed up, and no stations were closed as a result of the gatherings.
