In Portland, small Ferguson protest is peaceful

The Associated Press

PORTLAND — A small group of demonstrators gathered in downtown Portland to protest a grand jury’s decision not to indict a white police officer who killed a black 18-year-old in Ferguson, Missouri.

KATU-TV reports  that some chanted “No Justice, No Peace” outside the Justice Center, but the rally was mostly calm. No arrests were reported Monday night.

Thousands across the country protested the grand jury decision.

Authorities in Missouri announced Monday evening that Officer Darren Wilson will not be charged in the Aug. 9 shooting death of Michael Brown.

After the announcement, Portland Mayor Charlie Hales said Portland worked with community leaders “to help facilitate the safe demonstration of citizens’ constitutional rights of assembly and speech.”

He says society has a lot of work ahead to address inequities.
