Protesters Rally at Oakland's Lakeview Elementary School

A rally is under way this Monday evening at Oakland's Lakeview Elementary School.
A group of parents, students and teachers began a sit-in at Lakeview on June 15. They hope to persuade Oakland School Superintendent Tony Smith to reverse a decision to close Lakeview and four other campuses as a cost-cutting measure.
Earlier in the day on Monday, the school district ordered the protesters to leave Lakeview or face removal by police.
