DC Ferguson shuts down AM Rush Hour an MLK’s actual birthday

The 15th of January is Martin Luther King’s actual birthday. On that day in 2015, DC Ferguson marched into AM rush hour traffic and shut it down for many blocks in all directions of the protest. Police redirection of traffic greatly magnified the impact by closing off large sections of streets containing protesters, far beyond the protest itself. Police, security guards, and vigiliantes are still shooting another African-American every 28 hours. DC police are still using jump-outs to intimidate Black youth into submitting to illegal searches. Therefore, DC Ferguson is still “shutting shit down,” saying no justice means no business as usual!
