Hannah Brown’s day in Ferguson, Missouri this past Monday, November10, anticipating a Supreme Court ruling on the Michael Brown case.
A local protestor holds a sign that reads “shame on ferguson police”
A fire hydrant across from the police department reads “No Justice, No Peace.”
A local protestor holds a sign demanding justice for Mike Brown.
An unmarked police truck pulls up right across the street. Protestor approaches peacefully, and when asked what’s inside, the police officer says it is “equipment to handle the situation.” Protestor walks away, hands up, as those of us across the street cry, “Don’t shoot!” The officers begin to unload their guns and ammunition.
A small child joins the group of protestors, grips the megaphone in his tiny hands and cries, “Hands up, don’t shoot!” and “No justice, no peace!”
Hannah Brown is a Boston area-based poet and spoken word artist.
