Ferguson Protesters Attend NFL Game

Protesters at St. Louis Rams game: ‘Black lives matter on and off the field”

After making a surprise appearance at the St. Louis Symphony, where they interrupted the night with a performance of “Requiem for Mike Brown,” protesters demanding justice in the killing of unarmed teenager Michael Brown made another highly public stand at Monday night’s game between the St. Louis Rams and the San Francisco 49ers. The protests during ESPN’s Monday Night Football broadcast were part of a wider call to action, broadly recognized as Ferguson October, as the public awaits an announcement regarding whether or not officer Darren Wilson will be charged in Brown’s death.

Wilson shot and killed Brown Aug. 9 and has remained on paid leave from his job with the Ferguson police department.

Earlier Monday, former Princeton professor Cornel West was arrested in a “Moral Monday” protest outside the Ferguson police department. That evening, the protests continued inside and outside Edward Jones Dome. “Millennial Activist United have taken over section 425 of Edward Jones Dome,” MSNBC’s Tremaine Lee tweeted. Senior Editor Jamilah Lemieux captured protesters marching through the section of the stadium chanting “Hands up, don’t shoot.”
