#MikeBrown #Ferguson Protesters Disrupt Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade (Video)
Mike Brown Protesters disrupted the annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade today in New York City.
The protesters chanted, ““Dead bodies on the floor, nothing to be thankful for.”
At least seven protesters were arrested.
The Daily Mail reported:
At least seven people were arrested Thursday morning in Manhattan after trying to disrupt the annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade as part of a protest against the grand jury decision in Ferguson, Missouri.
The demonstrators used the hashtag #Stoptheparade on Twitter to rally supporters to their cause in New York City ahead of the holiday festivities.
‘Listen, I am a big defender of parades. Basically #stoptheparade is just taking the existing parade & making it more meaningful, so win-win? wrote user Em Cameron Thursday morning.
Before the annual parade got under way at 9am, some 50 people gathered outside the New York Public Library on Fifth Avenue carrying signs and chanting ‘No Justice! No peace!’ and ‘Justice for Mike Brown!’
The group protesting the grand jury decision not to indict Officer Darren Wilson in the August killing of unarmed black teenager Michael Brown in Ferguson walked down Fifth Avenue towards 37th Street, but then tried to enter the parade route on Sixth Avenue.
When officers posted along the street told the demonstrators that they were not allowed to be there, tempers flared and some of the marchers reportedly started pushing against NYPD barricades.
One of the marchers was arrested after he allegedly flipped over a trash can.
One man carried a “F*ck the police!” sign at the parade.
