ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – After a day of silence, protestors raised their voices again Tuesday, but not in Ferguson, Mo.
Protestors with Hands Up United brought their demands to U.S. Attorney Richard Callahan in the Eagleton Federal Courthouse in downtown St. Louis. The demands include the removal of the St. Louis County prosecutor Bob McCulloch and an expanded Department of Justice investigation.
“They’re taking our demands very seriously,” one demonstrator said. “That means that what you’re doing is working. That means that no matter how hot it continues to get, when people call, you got to come, you got to be there.”
Hands Up United says the protests will continue until their demands are met, and on Thursday, they plan on presenting the White House with 600,000 signatures in support of their cause.
