Dying For A Die-in

Monday, December 8th, 2014

A peaceful protest took place in the intersection of Broad and Patterson Streets in South Philadelphia as the Philadelphia Eagles’ game ended. Several hundred protesters and several hundred police gathered around 7:00PM. The only incidents occurred when Eagles’ fans hurled insults at the protesters. Also, some protesters were observed chanting racist slogans. No arrests were made.

Ironically,the police ended up protecting the police brutality protesters from the Broad Street bullies.

Witnesses of the event commented on an outstanding job by the organizers — a clergy group called POWER (Philadelphia Organized to Witness Empower & Rebuild).
