Hashtag BlackLivesMatter: “A riot is the language of the unheard”


Eyes from around the nation and world have been watching events in Ferguson, Missouri, for some time now.

Ferguson II


On Monday November 24th 2014 in the US, the grand jury of St Louis County said it would not charge Darren Wilson with a crime. Wilson is the White police officer who gunned down Michael Brown in broad daylight and let his body lie there in the street for four hours. Brown was 18 and unarmed. This was in Ferguson, Missouri, a mostly Black township in suburban St Louis. Nights of violence between police and protesters followed and 108 days of protest.
