FERGUSON, Aug 9 : Hundreds of protesters rallied in Ferguson, Missouri on Saturday to mark a year since police killed unarmed black teen Michael Brown, whose death sparked unrest and a national debate about race relations in America.
Led by Brown's family, a crowd marched along one of the avenues hit by fierce rioting last November when a court decided not to indict the white officer who shot the teenager.
Marchers shouted slogans such as "Hands up, don't shoot" and "We do this for who? We do this for Mike Brown" during a daytime rally with a children's marching band bringing up the rear of the parade.
But protesters grew more confrontational later, when around 200 people gathered outside the police headquarters chanting: "Hey hey, ho ho, these killer cops have got to go!"
Several protesters jumped over a barricade around the building and faced off with police officers, although the crowd eventually dispersed without violence. ?AFP
