Students gathered on Penn's campus earlier today to join the citywide march following yesterday's announcement that officer Darren Wilson was not indicted for killing 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., this past August.
At 2:00 p.m., about 50 students gathered in front of Du Bois College House and proceeded to march down Locust Walk to City Hall, where the citywide protest was starting. Protests currently continue throughout the city, as well as around the country.
Students Organizing for Unity and Liberation organized stations around campus today to paint red hand prints on the faces of those who wanted to show solidarity for the protests erupting around the country. The hand prints were meant to symbolize that the jury's decision was a "slap in the face," organizers said.
