Wednesday, April 29 – As protests over the in custody death of Freddie Gray enter their 12th day in Baltimore, solidarity events are scheduled to be held in Los Angeles, Washington DC, NYC, Boston, San Diego, Denver and Chicago. It is highly likely we will see more actions in Oakland and Ferguson as well.
A call for all Baltimore College & High School students to meet at Penn Station at 5:45 to march to City Hall went out this morning. Members of Baltimore’s Latino community also plan to gather on Wednesday evening in a show of solidarity at 6 p.m. at the CASA Baltimore office near Patterson Park “to march for justice and pray for peace in solidarity with African-American brothers and sisters.” (all times listed are in local timezone’s).
Links to videos of the marches are listed below:
