Activists Protest For Justice After Police Shootings

Thousands of protestors have been rallying and committing acts of civil disobedience during Ferguson October’s “Weekend of Resistance.” The protests, organized in an effort to continue shedding light on police brutality after unarmed teenager Michael Brown was killed in August, led to multiple arrests, over a dozen on “Moral Monday” alone.

Hundreds of protesters marched upon the Ferguson Police Department this morning, led by many members of the clergy and Cornel West, for Moral Monday, an event that has actually been ongoing in North Carolina for over a year.  Before the march this morning, the leaders said they were willing to get arrested, and that is exactly what happened to many of them, including West, Pastor Jamal Bryant, Pastor Michael McBride of PICO, and many others.

Speaking at St. Louis University’s Chaifetz Arena earlier on in the day, the exact reason for West’s arrest is a bit unclear.
