A photo from a protest that was part of a nationwide “Day of Rage,” after a vigil for Michael Brown in Lafayette Park. Protesters took to the streets and then stormed into the police station and held an impromptu rally. The police let them do their thing and then the crowd dispersed. More than 100 people gathered in Lafayette Square at 6 p.m and lit candles before taking part in a moment of silence for Brown. Channel Baptiste, one of the organizers of the gathering, encouraged the group to make the vigil the start of a renewed fight for social justice. Then the crowd took to the streets in an impromptu anti-police brutality protest march through the French Quarter, chanting “Hands up. Don’t shoot!” and “No justice, no peace. Fuck the police!” Throughout the vigil and the march, the New Orleans police kept a low profile. Undercover officers communicated the marchers’ location with headsets but made no effort to interfere with the crowd.
