Around 100 protesters gathered by the US Embassy in central London last Saturday evening to mark the first anniversary of Mike Brown’s death in Ferguson. 

The angry and defiant rally also decried the continuing killing of young black men at the hands of the racist police system. 

Demonstrators covered the Roosevelt Memorial in Grosvenor Square opposite the embassy with photographs of people who have been recently killed. 

Campaign group #BlackLivesMatter organised the rally and plan further rallies.
