In the past five years, there were more than 550 homicides in Oakland, most in shootings. According to data compiled by the Urban Strategies Council, 143 Oakland residents age 17 and under were shot in 2011 -- six of them fatally. A group of committed demonstrators are pleading to be heard by the police, policymakers, and their own community. The group calls itself SAVE, an acronym for Soldiers Against Violence Everywhere.
