Bay Area Shuts It Down for Mike Brown After No Indictment for Darren Wilson
Sun Nov 30 2014 (Updated 12/03/14)
Protests & Disruptions Erupt Nationwide After No Charges in Ferguson Grand Jury Verdict
As expected, the grand jury tasked with determining if there was enough evidence for charging Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson for the murder of Mike Brown determined that there wasn’t probable cause. That night, on November 24, people in Ferguson and across the country began to rise up for Mike Brown and shut down freeways, city streets, and more. Protests continued throughout the week, culminating on the annual Black Friday shopping day and continuing into the weekend.

In Ferguson on the first night after the verdict was announced, two police cars were burned as well as a number of local businesses. Major protests demanding justice and shutting down interstate freeways were held that night and throughout the week in Los Angeles, Portland, Minneapolis, Boston, New York, Atlanta, Miami, and numerous other cities across the U.S.

Oakland: On the first night, over 1000 people marched from Oscar Grant plaza at 14th & Broadway. The I-580 freeway was shut down for over two hours and rowdy protests continued downtown late into the night, with fires set in the streets and several businesses broken into. Street protests in Oakland continued over the next several days, with Oakland police headquarters targeted several times, with one march making its way to the edge of Berkeley and Emeryville. Over 150 people have been arrested. On Black Friday, activists locked themselves to each other and a BART train, effectively blocking all BART trains from transporting consumers to San Francisco. Fourteen people were arrested and released later in the day.
