Rally in US for justice

Rally in US for justice

There were thousands of people who marched in Washington and New York today seeking justice for black men who were killed at the hands of white police, the recent in weeks of demonstrations across the United States. In the march in the US capital for  "Justice For All March" the families of Michael Brown and Eric Garner were also among the demonstrators, this growing protest movement sparked by the fatal August shooting of the unarmed Brown, 18, by a white policeman.

A grand jury decision last month not to charge police officer Darren Wilson over the killing in Ferguson, Missouri was followed by another grand jury decision that also declined to charge another white policeman in the "chokehold" death in Staten Island of father-of-six Garner.
