Students In Moscow Protest In Support Of Ferguson
In a powerful show of support for Ferguson, Missouri and in protest against the senseless murder of unarmed teenager Mike Brown at the hands of Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson, over 150 Russian students organized a flash mob outside of the U.S. Embassy in Moscow.
Over 150 Russian and international students participated in a flash mob in front of the US embassy in Moscow on Wednesday. Standing on their knees, they lifted their hands to commemorate US teenager Michael Brown.
Such a posture didn’t save him from being shot by a Ferguson police officer on August 9. His death sparked protests all over Missouri, and the participants of the Moscow rally decided to draw attention to the violent means the US government uses to suppress its citizens.
So amazing to see people from all across the world joining in to support #JUSTICEFORMIKEBRON.
