Marching for Change: State of Emergency – Ferguson, Missouri (Dispatch 6)

Subscribe to VICE News here: http://bit.ly/Subscribe-to-VICE-News

Rallies, marches, and protests continued in Ferguson and Saint Louis ahead of Michael Brown’s funeral today. VICE News spent the weekend speaking to people about what’s next for the city and the movement against police brutality and racism.

On Saturday, NAACP members and supporters marched through Ferguson. On Sunday, the annual Saint Louis “Peace Fest” turned into a tribute to the slain teenager attended by community leaders, Brown’s family, and the parents of Trayvon Martin — who spoke with the crowd about ending all violence, not just that perpetrated by police.

Residents and activists pledged to carry on their fight for justice beyond Brown’s burial, while the teen’s father asked the public for a day of “silence” — and no protests — today.
