As part of a national protest, people walked off their jobs or out of school holding their hands up in a show of solidarity with Ferguson protesters.
Monday’s walkouts stretched from New York to San Francisco, and included Chicago and Washington, D.C. At the University of Missouri-St. Louis, three dozen students rallied outside the library and walked out of class.
The protest came a day after five players for the St. Louis Rams entered the football field with their hands raised. The St. Louis Police Officers Association called for them to be disciplined and for the NFL to apologize.
An NFL spokesman said the league respects “the concerns of all individuals who have expressed views on this tragic situation.”
