Millions March, NYC

Over 25000 protesters marching in the streets of Manhattan on Saturday December 16, 2014, asking that policemen involved in lethal shootings will not go free. The protests is the most recent in a series that started in New York after the Ferguson verdict, and was fueled by the decision of the grand jury on Staten Island not to indict the officer who strangled Eric Garner.

The protest was over a mile long, and ended around 6pm near City Hall. Later, a group of protesters would block Brooklyn Bridge and the NYPD reported some suspicious tools had been discovered amongst the people blocking the bridge, and an arrest had been made after a person “attacked officers”.
