Protesters Block Georgetown Streets over Ferguson Decision

Hundreds of people walked through the streets of Georgetown Saturday afternoon to protest the grand jury decision in Ferguson, Missouri.

Across the country, protesters used the holiday shopping weekend to voice their displeasure over the grand jury’s decision not to indict Offier Darren Wilson, the police officer who killed Michael Brown. Rallies in St. Louis, San Francisco, and New York highlighted the anger felt by many people about the action.

People in Washington started at the DuPont Circle Metro Station and marched toward Georgetown shortly after noon Saturday. They temporarily blocked the intersection of M Street, Northwest and Wisconsin Avenue, Northwest.

The protest was loud, but non-violent. There were no reports of arrests.

After the protest in Georgetown, some used Metro to go to the Pentagon City Mall and continue their demands.
