Over the weekend, thousands of activists, community leaders and concerned citizens gathered in protest of black men being gunned down by police in St. Louis.
And according to a video submitted to us by protester Katina Parker, peaceful protesters where pepper-sprayed by police as they exercised their right as U.S. citizens.
“On Saturday, October 11th, more than 200 protestors who were participating in the weekend of Resistance via #Ferguson October, were tear gassed by St. Louis Police for peaceful protest on behalf of Vonderitt Myers, Jr., who was murdered by St. Louis police just 1 day before the 2-month anniversary of Mike Brown’s murder. This video that captures the assault.”

Kudos to all parties present in Ferguson and throughout the country for continuing to demand justice for all black people.
