Michael Brown Protestors Hope to "Shut Down" H Street Saturday Night
Participants in a related protest marched through the streets of DC 8/23
The official name of the event is the "March To Shut Down H St. For Mike Brown: No Justice No Economic Peace," and they are headed our way starting at 7pm Saturday. Here's how the organizers explain the protest: "We are continuing our protests for justice for Mike Brown and his family by shutting down another one of DC’s major economic thoroughfares." One might be forgiven for thinking Dupont or Georgetown could better serve the purpose, but it's happening here, so plan accordingly. Those wishing to take part in the protest should meet in front of Union Station by 7pm. The official hashtag is #DCFerguson. Please note that this is the second such protest in DC in recent days. The last one passed through Chinatown. You can find pictures and video of it in this post on Democratic Underground. More about this event from the Washington City Paper.
