Don't Shoot Peace Rally at Union Square
Thousands of New Yorkers gathered at Union Square at 7 p.m. for a peaceful protest. It was a National Moment of Silence to remember Michael Brown and Eric Ferguson, both who were murdered by police brutality in the past month. Protesters chanted "Justice for Eric. Justice for Michael" and "No justice, no peace."
