Mike Brown protesters from Ferguson disrupted the St. Louis Symphony last night in St. Louis City. It all happened as the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra and Chorus were preparing to perform Brahms’ Requiem just after the intermission.
The group stood up after intermission and sang,
“Which side are you on? Justice for Mike Brown.”
They called it a Mike Brown ‘flash mob.’ The activists then displayed three hand-painted banners referencing Mike Brown.
Judging from the audience’s reaction, they did not have much support from the crowd.
Mike Brown was shot dead in Ferguson, Missouri on August 9, 2014.
Michael Brown reportedly robbed a local Ferguson convenience store shortly before his death. Then Brown smashed police officer Darren Wilson in the face, severely injuring the officer, before he was shot dead.
