Yesterday was Black Friday, the day of the year when massive sales help put corporations’ bottom line into the black. This year, however, was a little different in many places. Protests took place in many cities, including St. Louis, Oakland, NYC, and Seattle. Photos, videos, and tweets from the protests are incredible as hundreds and hundreds of people protested in malls against the decision to not indict Darren Wilson and the continuing police brutality.
In Oakland, several protesters locked themselves together and to the BART, causing the transit system to shut down for two hours. Protesters shut down the St. Louis Galleria in St. Louis with protests and a die in. In Chicago, Wicker Park Street was closed because of protests. Seattle also saw protests, which caused Westlake Center to also close down early and protesters rallied outside of New York City’s Macy’s in Herald Square.
I definitely recommend looking through the photos and videos from yesterday’s protests on Twitter – there are some amazing leaders continuously working towards justice in this movement.
