Ferguson Protest in Baltimore Marches from City Hall to Inner Harbor

BALTIMORE (WNEW) — A protest organized on Facebook drew a crowd of about 100 to Baltimore’s City Hall Wednesday night.

They were angered by the shooting death of Michael Brown in Ferguson and those closer to home.

Protesters say police in Baltimore are not being held accountable for their actions as well.

About 100 protesters marched down Light Street towards the Inner Harbor where bystanders were taken by surprise.

Officers escorted them, stopping traffic along the way. Police say they respect the demonstration and were glad it ended peacefully.

One protestor, Duane Davis, said there are still positive events happening in his community despite recent national unrest. He said he and others will be feeding the homeless on Sunday beginning at 10 a.m. at St. Vincent De Paul. He will also be handing out food next Tuesday at Odom Park during a Bess The Book Bus event, which will provide underprivileged children with books.
