    Protestors hold their signs during a BART rally last week.

    Hundreds of people are gearing up for another round of protests in the East Bay in honor of a Hayward man, shot and killed by a BART policeman.

    This one might be the largest one yet.

    The Coalition Against Police Executions or CAPE is planning a peaceful rally and march.

    The protest will end at the steps of the Alameda County court house.

    Protesters say they will hold a die in.

    Many will lie in the streets, face down depicting the way Oscar Grant was killed.
