Baltimore: Not a Moment, but a Movement

Added on by Joshua Sinn.

In solidarity with the National Day of Anger, people gathered in downtown Baltimore to continue their journey for change. As they reached MLK Boulevard, marchers faced countless police lines as BPD tried to prevent their movement to M&T Bank Stadium and the Horseshoe Casino. As the rally moved on, the police continued to box marchers in at Battle Monument Park and eventually on North Avenue. At North Avenue, dozens of police and state troopers blocked protesters from going North, South, East, or West, with a police helicopter hovering above, loudly stating "This is an illegal assembly! Disperse now or you will be arrested!". After 15 minutes of marchers asking police to let them leave, the line opened up and the rally continued a few more blocks north, where it ended with powerful words, unity, and hugs.
