St. Louis protesters return to streets after 120 arrested

(Worthy News) – A large crowd gathered outside the prison in St. Louis, Missouri, overnight to call for the release of protesters still in police custody. Earlier, several hundred people also marched peacefully through the city’s downtown, while high school students in at least two districts also joined a demonstration.

Police said there were no arrests or incidents, following a weekend in which peaceful protests turned violent three nights in a row.

Some 123 people were arrested on Sunday for failing to disperse, officers said. Some of them have been released, but protesters chanting “free our people” outside the jail Monday night said many were still behind bars 24 hours later.

Organizers said they planned to hold another rally on Tuesday. [ Source (Read More…) ]
