Last night over 200 protesters (estimated by the ProJo for what it’s worth) marched from the field across from the Providence Place Mall to the Providence Public Safety Complex, with cries of “No Justice, No Peace!,” “Justice for Mike Brown” and “Whose city? Our city!”
The event was held to stand in solidarity with and boost the morale of the people in Ferguson MS, where police shot and killed Michael Brown, an unarmed black man. The marchers called for an end to police brutality, an end to the militarization of law enforcement and to “give the power back to the people.”
The march was entirely peaceful.
Liandra Medeiros, a Nonviolence Initiative Coordinator, was on the scene, and she recorded some great video and took some pictures of the event.
