USA: Brooklyn Bridge SHUT DOWN by anti-police brutality protesters

United States, New York
December 14, 2014 at 02:37 GMT +00:00 · Published

Over 1000 anti-police-brutality protesters descended on to Brooklyn Bridge on Saturday night, shutting down traffic on the iconic suspension overpass which connects the boroughs of Manhattan and Brooklyn over the East River.

At least one confirmed arrest was made during the protest, which was triggered following the 'Million March NYC' protest earlier in the day. Protesters took to the streets to express outrage over the grand jury decisions not to indict the officers involved in the Eric Garner and Michael Brown cases, with organisers using the hashtag 'Black lives matter' on social media.

The march continued into Brooklyn towards the memorial for unarmed African-American Akai Gurley, who was recently shot dead by police at a housing project.
