Rally and Vigil Taking Place Downtown Tonight in Solidarity with Ferguson Protests


In concert with the National Moment of Silence planned for tonight, Clevelanders will gather at the Cleveland Public Library at 7 p.m. From the organizers: "This is in memory of Mike Brown and all others slain due to police brutality. We are looking to have a peaceful event. Make posters and let our silence speak for us!"

Also, at 6:30 p.m. others will be gathering at the Free Stamp to rally against police brutality. In contrast to the vigil at CPL, this event will include a march. "We plan to take action on the grassroots level," the organizers of that event write.
