Silver Spring #ReclaimMLK Sit-In 26

Silver Spring, Maryland, January 24, 2014. The Montgomery County Civil Rights Coalition hosted an hour long rally and brief march in downtown Silver Spring to protest ongoing police violence without accountability, most egregiously against people of color. This action was in solidarity with hundreds of similar events nationwide celebrating the true legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King. I counted around fifty participants during the hour I was on the street. Interactions between the heavily armed, bullet-proof vested Montgomery County Police and the demonstrators were generally respectful and peaceful.
