Protests are growing fast, as more cities join in the outrage over the Staten Island grand jury’s decision to not indict the officer that put Eric Garner in a chokehold, a move that, as we all know, killed him.
Over in Miami, protestors managed to shut down a major highway, while over 1,000 people marched in the streets all the way up in Boston.
New York City’s momentum continues to progress, with over 200 people arrested in one night this week, and constant marching taking place all over the busy city.

According to NBC News, one of the protestors spoke to the outlet while down in Wall Street last night, telling the site:
“We are animals to them [the police]. If we’re animals and you’re afraid of us, how can you really protect us? You’re not going to try,” “We are upset and hurt beyond reasoning right now.”
Protestors in the Big Apple also took their marching and chanting off the streets and into corporations such as the Apple store on Fifth Avenue, and Macy’s in Herald Square, where they also staged “die-ins.”

Other cities involved in the intense protests are Chicago, Washington, D.C., San Francisco, and Oakland, where a lot of roads have been completely shut down by marching.
