American Protesters Stage ‘Die-in’ Demo in St. Louis


A crowd of American demonstrators staged a peaceful protest in St. Louis, marking 100 days since the fatal shooting of unarmed black teenager Mike Brown by a white police officer. Protesters laid down on chalk-marked areas, pretending to have been shot.

The action caused temporary street closures in the city, as a couple hundred demonstrators marched in protest of the death of 18-year-old Brown, who was killed by police officer Darren Wilson in front of his home in Ferguson, Missouri in August, RT reported.

Sunday’s march saw demonstrators lying down on chalk outlines of bodies, posing as individuals shot by police.

One of the central intersections near Washington University was blocked. The event was violence-free, with no major instigations reported.

The march was organized to mark the 100th day of waiting for justice to be brought in Brown’s case. The grand jury decision, which is to determine whether criminal charges will be brought against Wilson, is expected any day now. However, the date of the verdict is not expected to be announced.
