    Minneapolis Minnesota

    December 4, 2014

    This protest and march was in response to several unarmed people of color being killed by law enforcement in the United States recently and the subsequent lack of charges or punishment for the police involved. The most recent was Eric Garner who was wrestled to the sidewalk and held by the neck until until he was dead as he said, "I can't breathe". On the day before this event, it was announced the police would not be indicted on any criminal charges in that case.

    The protesters met at 34th and Nicollet and marched south on Nicollet Avenue.

    Common chants:
    Black lives matter
    No justice. No peace.
