Martin Luther King's birthday celebrated with Protests

Windsor Genova – Fourth Estate Contributor

Atlanta, GA, United States (4E) – Protests against police killings of unarmed black men marked the observance of Martin Luther King Jr . Day in Atlanta, New York City, St. Louis and other cities on Monday.

Some 200 young demonstrators briefly stopped a parade near Atlanta’s Ebenezer Baptist Church, where the birthday of the civil rights activist is commemorated with a service every year on the third Monday of January.

arrying signs and slogans and shouting, they mixed with the marchers in the annual parade down Peachtree Street and then sat, lay en masse in the middle of the street and raised fists toward the air several times. The police pleaded with them to move on.

The Atlanta protesters also marched in front of a stage at the Ebenezer Baptist Church while service was underway carrying a cardboard box decorated like a coffin, and chanting, “Black people are dying.”

More than a thousand people gathered in Harlem demanding justice for Eric Garner and Michael Brown, both black victims of white police officers.

Garner died in July after a Staten Island police used a chokehold to arrest him for selling cigarettes on a sidewalk. Brown was an 18-year-old shot dead by an officer during an altercation in Ferguson, Missouri in August. Separate juries acquitted the officers sparking rioting and anti-police protests nationwide last year.

Protesters staged die-ins in outside Bloomingdale’s in New York and on streets between Boston Common and the Public Garden and in front of the State House in Boston.
