A contingency of protestors coming from an earlier Palestine rally stormed in to Sara D. Roosevelt Park around 9 p.m., chanting, “Please don’t shoot me dead! I got my hands on my head!” referencing how Brown held his hands up before being killed.

Watch the protestors speak here:

coming out. There is an army rising up to break every chain. I’m a living example of that. We[‘re] here baby, and we ain’t playing [any] games.”
