National Moment of Silence Protest in Chicago, Illinois was a SUCCESS! The amount of unity and diversity within the crowd brought tears to my eyes. We met up at the Daley Plaza at 6 PM, had a moment of silence for 4 minutes with our hands held in the air. Every minute represented the four hours Mike Brown’s body was on the ground. Chicago is truly not a segregated city. The people know how to come together when we need to. WE TOOK IT TO THE STREETS. People joined in, we were chanting and screaming. There were black people, white people, asians, hispanics, everyone was there. It was a beautiful experience. All in support of Ferguson and police brutality victims. A protest to help stop racist cops from prevailing.
Luckily, the police kept their asses on the sidelines and out of our way. There were too many of us to be controlled.
