Two arrested as Ferguson protests move to St Louis

Demonstrators take part in a silent protest in the streets of downtown St. Louis, Missouri on March 14, 2015Police arrested at least two people as nightly protests in the racially troubled US suburb of Ferguson over the police killing of unarmed black teenager Michael Brown shifted into the heart of St Louis. Up to 50 youthful protesters gathered after sunset at the Midwestern city’s historic 19th century court house, then marched through streets lined with bars packed with St Patrick’s revelers before briefly halting traffic. Protesters have vowed to sustain their movement in the wake of a federal Justice Department probe into Brown’s death on August 9 that prompted sometimes violent demonstrations as well as a fierce debate about policing and race relations in America today. Five Ferguson residents have taken a first step toward ousting the city’s mayor, James Knowles, by delivering an affidavit Friday to City Hall, the St Louis activist Organization for Black Struggle said on its Twitter feed.
