WASHINGTON — Protests are being planned throughout Tuesday in Washington and Baltimore in the wake of a grand jury’s decision not to indict a white police officer who killed a black 18-year-old in Ferguson, Missouri.
In Washington, one group lied on the ground to stage a “die-in” in front of Metro police headquarters. They plan to occupy various buildings in the District over a 28-hour period.
A larger protest is planned for 7 p.m. at Mount Vernon Square in Northwest.
In Baltimore, roughly 100 Morgan State University students gathered outside a police station with signs. Other protests were held at the University of Baltimore and the University of Maryland, Baltimore County campuses.
Baltimore People’s Power Assembly is planning a protest at McKeldin Square. Another group plans to march on City Hall.
