Minneapolis protest demands justice for Michael Brown

Minneapolis, MN – An estimated 5000 people marched here, Nov. 25, in the wake of the Ferguson, Missouri grand jury decision to not indict the cop who murdered Mike Brown.

After filling the streets in front of the Minneapolis Police Third Precinct station, at the busy intersection of Lake Street and Minnehaha Avenue, protesters marched down both sides of the six-lane Highway 55, which is connected to the metro freeway system.

According to eye witnesses, one demonstrator was injured when a car driven by a white male purposely drove into demonstrators before the march. The injured woman was taken away in an ambulance.

Earlier in the day, hundreds of college students participated in a campus protest. Also, students at Minneapolis’ South High School held a large sit-in and march.
