Solidarity march with Ferguson in St. Paul, MN

By Loretta VanPelt

St. Paul, MN – Over 300 people gathered in here, August 10, in a show of solidarity with the people of Ferguson, Missouri and to remember the one-year anniversary of the death of Michael Brown at the hands of the police.

Protesters assembled at Hamline Park and marched down Snelling Avenue to University Avenue, where a die-in was staged. Demonstrators were on the ground for four-and-a-half minutes to honor Brown.

The protest march ended up at the Western District Precinct police station, where some of the organizers spoke, including the aunt of Marcus Golden, a young man who was killed by police in Saint Paul in January of this year.

The action was organized by Black Liberation Project and Black Lives Matter Minneapolis.
