BART Shutdown of Cell Phone Services Part of Wider Crackdown on Protest

via OpEdNews on 8/17/11

To prevent a planned protest from going "viral," Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) in San Francisco shut down cell phone service at four stations on August 11. The hacktivist group Anonymous responded with plans that included a peaceful protest on August 15. Anonymous drew attention to a move that many believe has no precedent because no government agency has cut off communications out of fear that a protest might happen before.
