St Louis, MO — On Sunday’s action for the Ferguson October Weekend of Resistance, demonstrators gathered at the site of the killing of VonDerrit Myers for another very secretive act of civil disobedience.
When protesters arrived in the area, police had once again set up check points at all side streets leading to the location. Non residents were not permitted to enter, and residents were forced to provide identification to be able to get to their homes.
At the memorial site there were at least two hundred people when we arrived around 1 am. We came to learn that we were in Group 2 with the Myers family, and that another group had already set off marching.
