How To Live-Stream Ferguson Protests On The One-Year Anniversary Of Michael Brown's Death — VIDEO
Sunday marked the one-year anniversary of the killing of unarmed black teenager Michael Brown, which accelerated the growth of the Black Lives Matter movement and sparked a national dialogue about racially-charged police brutality. One year later, protests in Ferguson resumed on Sunday to push for justice that protesters believe has yet to be delivered. Protests in Ferguson captured international attention back in November, following a court's ruling on Wilson. But many activists have argued that coverage of Ferguson in the media has been racially biased, and has antagonized black protesters and communities. That certainly depends on which news outlet you watch, but regardless, you could always stand to take anything you watch or read about Ferguson with a grain of salt. As for how to see the protests in Ferguson live, there are multiple outlets that are livestreaming what's happening on the ground.
On its YouTube channel, Ruptly TV provided livestreaming of protests, beginning late Saturday evening and early Sunday morning, that you can watch in the video below. The channel posted the video with the description:
Protesters are due to gather outside Ferguson police department headquarters on Friday, August 7, ahead of the one-year anniversary of the killing of 18-year-old black teenager Michael Brown by white police officer Darren Wilson. The police station was one of the hotspots for the month-long protests following Brown’s death on August 9, 2015.
Ruptly TV is also livestreaming police interactions with protesters, which you can view in the video below:
Whatever your opinion on the predominantly black Ferguson community, it's certainly experienced real loss, and equal parts grief and frustration. Protesters' demonstrations are powerful and passionate, and whatever perspective you might gain in columnists' analysis, watching and viscerally experiencing the emotionally-loaded protests could provide you with even more of it.
