Victoria Park (opposite Public Gardens)
Michael Brown was supposed to be starting college this week. On August 9th, the unarmed Black youth was shot dead, eight times by Ferguson police. Hundreds of irate Fergusons took to the streets yelling: “Hands up, don’t shoot!” The police responded with teargas, live ammunition and road blocks. This gathering in Halifax will focused on awakening a Pan-Africanist centred conscious and acknowledging Black life, which is devalued as a whole. We are in solidarity with Michael Brown, the people of Ferguson, Missouri and the African Diaspora as a whole.
