Protests in St Louis after police shooting

Issue No. 2425

A weekend of action against police racism took place across the US city of St Louis, Missouri, last Saturday and Sunday.

Lesley McSpadden, mother of Mike Brown who was killed by police in the St Louis suburb of Ferguson in August, led a march condemning police terror.

Protests also erupted after police shot another black teenager in the city, Vonderrick Myers, 17 times last week. 

Police said he was armed, but witnesses said he was only holding a sandwich.
