Several hundred people rallied at One Police Plaza in New York City Aug. 18 to demand justice for Michael Brown and to support the rebellion of youth against police brutality in Ferguson, Mo. The rally also demanded justice for those people of color killed by New York police such as Eric Garner, Ramarley Graham and Kyam Livingston. The protesters then marched to City Hall to protest a call made by Mayor Bill de Blasio for people “not to resist arrest” by the police. The protest was called by the People’s Power Assembly.
