Over a hundred protesters in Ferguson, angry at the decision not to indict Darren Wilson for killing unarmed black teenager Michael Brown, have started a week-long peace march to Jefferson City.
The 135-mile march is being organised by the National Association for the Advancement of Coloured People in an attempt to bring peaceful visibility on the need for reform in the justice system.
NAACP president Cornell William Brooks told the St Louis Post:
What we’re endeavoring to do is seek justice for a grieving family and systemic change and reforms at the municipal, state and federal levels.
Participants will walk more than 20 miles during the day and start at churches at night.
Armies of protesters took to the streets following the Ferguson shooting decision, in a sign of the monumental challenge now facing America.
The police officer who shot dead Michael Brown says he has a clear conscience over his actions.
