Hundreds Gather in Fresh New York Race Protests

More than 500 people gathered in New York on Thursday for a second night of protests against the chokehold death of an unarmed black father-of-six by a white officer. The crowd descended on Foley Square near New York police headquarters carrying placards saying “Black Lives Matter,” “Racism Kills” and “Ferguson is Everywhere.”

Several helicopters flew overhead, monitoring the swelling crowd as they chanted “no justice, no peace.” It is the second consecutive night that demonstrators took to the streets of New York in fury at a grand jury’s decision on Wednesday not to indict the officer over the July 17 death of Eric Garner.
