#BlackLives Matter MN At Mall Of America, Transit & Airport

Black Lives Matter Minnesota raised its voice in multiple locations December 23rd, disrupting shopping, the metro system and the airport to protest the November killing of Jamar Clark, a black man by Minneapolis police. Their demands: -#ReleaseTheTapes of his killing -Prosecute the police involved without a grand jury by a special prosecutor -Federal domestic terrorism charges against white supremacists who shot 5 protestors -Institute a safety plan to protect our communities from Police violence -Disinvest from police and reinvest in Black futures There was litigation by Mall of America, which feared a repeat of last year's Black Lives Matter protest. While media reports were confused the court did not block a protest at Mall of America.
