Protesters March in D.C. Streets for Mike Brown
A large crowd of protesters has descended upon a northeast neighborhood in Washington, D.C., taking over the streets, on Saturday night in a symbol of solidarity with their counterparts in Ferguson, Missouri, who called for justice for Mike Brown earlier during the day. The Washington protesters chanted "Whose streets? Mike's Streets" and "We're young, we're strong, we're marching all night long" as they walked down H Street northeast, at one point hitting the 19th Street intersection, with police not far away. Protesters are also taking to Twitter with the hashtag #DCFerguson. The crowds have stopped traffic and some drivers are honking at the protesters. A man on the live-stream video said the march has halted two Greyhound buses from driving. Brown, an unarmed teenager, was shot and killed by a police offer on August 9. His death has sparked multiple protests in the St. Louis suburb of Missouri, some of which were met with tear gas and tanks. Have something to add to this story? Share it in the comments.
