About 200 Protesters March to Providence Police Headquarters

Providence Journal, August 20, 2014

About 200 people filled the street in front of the Providence Place mall Wednesday behind a big banner that said: “Justice for Mike Brown.”

Chanting “No justice, no peace; No racist police” and “Hands up, don’t shoot,” the crowd marched from the mall to the Providence Public Safety Complex.

The glass lobby of the public safety building rang with chants at about 8:20 p.m., as the group faced about 10 police officers, who stood quietly for the nearly half-hour protest.

Most of the participants carried signs that said “The American INjustice system,” “All black lives matter,” “End the killing; End mass incarceration.” {snip}
