Rallies spread to different U.S. cities overnight as protesters marched in solidarity with the latest alleged victim of police brutality, Baltimore’s Freddie Gray.
According to NBC News, hundreds gathered in New York City’s Union Square on Wednesday, picking up protesters as they marched to different areas of the city and growing to a force of more than 1,000. By night’s end, more than 60 people had reportedly been arrested. NBC News noted that similar rallies were held in Seattle, San Diego and Denver, with 11 demonstrators in Denver held for “resisting police, disobedience to lawful orders, obstructing roadways and interference.”
The Guardian, meanwhile, reported rallies in Ferguson, Mo., as well as in Washington, D.C., Minneapolis and Boston. In Boston more than 1,000 assembled in front of police headquarters and began chanting, “Being black is not a crime, same story every time,” and “Every night and every day, join the fight for Freddie Gray.”
