Tonight, hours before the curfew, there is a military-assault type attack on the protesters in Ferguson again. They have sealed off all the highways and roads leading into the area and are again bringing in the military vehicles and tear gas and rubber bullets.
One woman eyewitness in the front line of the protest said 'all we did was march and go down on our knees saying "Hands Up, Don't Shoot" and the police suddenly just started shooting tear gas at us because we were 1000 Black people protesting. She said the only people shooting were the police shooting tear gas.
WE HAVE TO STOP THIS! We cannot let them shut down the defiant resistance! Come to Daley Plaza, Dearborn and Washington, in Chicago, 5 pm Monday.We need unity. Justice Now.
The only reason that people know about Michael Brown's heinous murder is because people in Ferguson have stood up and refused to back down. We can't leave them on their own to fight this, we have to stand with them and redouble the struggle. The righteous demands of the people must be met 1) indict and jail the killer cop , 2) Fire the police chief 3) Full accounting of what happened immediately.
