USA: Black Lives Matter protesters hold rally in Washington DC

The Black Lives Matter movement is keeping the momentum going with another night of protest next to Lafayette Park in Washington D.C. on Wednesday. Protesters expressed the need for change and denounced racism and police brutality, among other issues. Protesters were heard chanting slogans such as «Racist cops have got to go» and «No justice, no peace.» Activist with Solidarity DC, Bryan Jones, said that the movement is «on the doorstep of a revolution,» and called not only to end police brutality, but also called for a better justice system and equal pay. «If you're going to ask for something, ask for everything,» he added. While the rally was mostly peaceful, a group of protesters faced off momentarily with Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) officers guarding a church nearby.
