WASHINGTON, Oct 11 : Hundreds of protesters have gathered outside a US police station, chanting against police violence and pushing forward a weekend of demonstrations after eight people were arrested in chaotic protests the previous night.
The crowd of roughly 300 people in Ferguson, which is in the state of Missouri, stood in the middle of the street chanting phrases such as "My hands on my head. Please don't shoot me dead" and "Who shuts it down? We shut it down!" Local police departments have gassed us, beat us and shot us with rubber bullets, but they cannot stop our march for justice. ?REUTERS
