NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Protesters rallied peacefully in several Louisiana cities in the wake of the Missouri grand jury decision not to indict a police officer in the fatal shooting of Michal Brown.
About 100 people marched through the streets of New Orleans Tuesday night, blocking traffic and nearly making their way onto the Pontchartrain Expressway before being turned back by police.
The protest winded down outside the Hale Boggs Federal Building, where a smaller group sat in silence for several minutes before eventually dispersing.
No arrests were reported.
The Advocate reports more than 200 people gathered on LSU’s campus to hold a memorial. The event, which was organized by an LSU student, was non-violent and mostly solemn.
