Photos: Solidarity Action for Ferguson

Posted By on Wed, Nov 26, 2014 at 7:40 AM

More than 200 people attended Solidarity Action for Ferguson march and rally last night in response to Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson not being indicted for the shooting and killing of unarmed teenager Michael Brown. After a "die-in" in front of Spokane City Hall, symbolizing Brown's body being left in the street for hours after his death, marchers walked from City Hall to the STA Plaza and back chanting "no justice, no peace" and "hands up, don't shoot," among others.
