A’s Protest Scheduled

The Oakland A’s are holding a small neighborhood meeting Thursday evening at Weibel Elementary School in Warm Springs — not far from where the team would like to build a stadium near the future Warm Springs BART station.

The thing is, according to stadium opponents, only 25 people will be allowed in for the meeting – the A’s prefer small venues where they can make their pitch without large numbers opponents shouting them down.

So those who won’t get inside for the meeting say they will be protesting the stadium plan outside the school around 6:30 p.m.

It’ll be interesting to see how big a crowd they get. Opponents have so far gotten 1388 people to sign this online petition.
