Ferguson, Eric Garner Protests Spread Worldwide

The recent non-indictment rulings of two high-profile cases involving white police officers and black Americans have been followed by protests in hundreds of American cities, and totaling thousands. Protests have been raging on since August, when Officer Darren Wilson shot and killed the unarmed young man Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri. Earlier in the summer in Staten Island, New York, officer Daniel Pantaleo placed Eric Garner in an illegal chokehold that killed him. Activists have been calling for indictment charges for the officers responsible for the men’s deaths.

The protests, which demand a focus on civil rights and accountability for police brutality, are sprawling outward from the United States and internationally. On Saturday, activists in Tokyo took to the streets in protest. Demonstrators held up photos of the late Michael Brown, as well as signs reading “Tokyo stands with Ferguson” and “America, the world is watching.” No arrests have been reported. Revolution News reports that Ferguson demonstrations were held in Melbourne, Australia on Saturday.

Colorado, USA: Hundreds of students from metro Denver area high schools, a middle school and and at least two K-8 schools, walked out of class on Friday and marched to the city’s municipal center. The students were taking part in a third day of demonstrations in response to grand juries in New York and Missouri deciding not to prosecute police officers who killed unarmed black men: here.
