Protesters marched across the DTM in support of those protesting in Ferguson, Missouri this afternoon. Though police closed down a section of Market Street in front of the police station as a precaution, the protest, while it included some strong rhetoric, was very peaceful. Speakers called on the Charlottesville community to wake up and realize that the same problems — police targeting African-Americans for stops more than whites, and the militarization of the police –exist here.
