|FERGUSON Josh Rosen Cardinals Jersey , Mo., Aug. 9 (Xinhua) -- As the one year anniversary of the shooting of unarmed 18-year-old Michael Brown approaches, a group of 500 protesters stood in front of the Ferguson Police Department on Saturday, chanting and dancing in the streets, reasserting their demands for justice.
In the year that has passed, the U.S. Department of Justice released a scathing report showing systematic abuse through bench warrants for minor offenses of the city's primarily African- American population. Since then the head of the Ferguson Police Department has been ousted and a replacement has been installed.
But Mel Moffitt, an activist with Lost Voices Josh Jackson Packers Jersey , explained that despite the work that's been done, there is still progress to be made. "We don't need them policing our community, we can do that ourselves, because every time they police our community, one of us ends up dying, and that's something we're flat-out tired of."
Protester Durand Hines told Xinhua that he was pleased with some of the progress made, but still has reservations. "They got some people off Josh Allen Bills Jersey , and started putting some black people in, to make it equal ... but at the same time, we all gotta get past each other's skin color. It's about the character about a man, right?"
Three protesters purchased a four-foot-long roast pig, and put a police patch around its neck and a police hat on its head, then invited Missouri State Highway Patrol's Ronald Johnson, and Ferguson Police's Colonel Andre Anderson Joseph Noteboom Chargers Jersey , the Interim Chief of Police to partake in eating the pig. Both officers declined, but soon after Colonel Anderson was later seen having corn-on-the-cob, having a friendly conversation with several protesters.
Shortly after midnight on Saturday, a person was shot in a parking lot on West Florissant Street. Police blocked off roads and secured the parking lot with crime scene tape.
Several events are planned to commemorate the tragedy in the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson, where Michael Brown lived and was killed by white police officer Darren Wilson during a confrontation on Aug. 9, 2014.
Brown's death stirred up a nationwide spate of protests -- some of which turned into riots -- and soul-searching, which has continued as one black suspect after another died controversially at the hands of police.
According to the conclusion about Ferguson of the U.S. Justice Department Jessie Bates Bengals Jersey , the police, largely white, have for years systematically bullied and harassed the minority black citizens, using traffic stops and other arrests for minor violations to collect fines.
Anger still lingers on a year after Brown was killed, for neither a grand jury nor federal justice officials called for criminal charges against the police who shot him dead.
UNITED NATIONS, Sept. 30 (Xinhua) -- Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas on Wednesday expressed his thanks to the 119 member states of the United Nations General Assembly who voted to allow the raising of the Palestinian flag at United Nations Headquarters in New York.
"Here, I wish to express -- on behalf of our people -- deepest gratitude to the countries that voted in favor of the resolution enabling us today to raise the flag of the State of Palestine at United Nations Headquarters James Washington Steelers Jersey ," Abbas said in his speech to the annual high-level debate of the UN General Assembly, which entered its third day here Wednesday.
The Palestinian flag will be raised in a ceremony here at UN Headquarters at 1 p.m. EST on Wednesday.
"The day -- God willing -- is not far when we will raise the flag of Palestine in East Jerusalem, the capital of the State of Palestine," Abbas said.
Palestine has been waiting 67 years to be recognized as a full UN member state, he added.
"While Palestine was partitioned into two States -- according to which Israel was established 67 years ago -- the second part of that resolution still awaits implementation," he said. "Palestine, which is an observer State in the United Nations James Daniels Bears Jersey , deserves full recognition and full membership."
Palestine has been considered a non-member state of the United Nations since 2012.
"It is unreasonable and painful -- in light of all the enormous sacrifices we have made, our patience over all of these years of exile and suffering, and our acceptance to make peace ... -- that the question of Palestine unjustly remains unresolved," he said.
He added that Palestine had remained committed to the two-state solution based on international law, the relevant United Nations resolutions, the Arab Peace Initiative, and the Quartet Roadmap.
On Nov. 29 Jaire Alexander Packers Jersey , 2012, the UN General Assembly voted overwhelmingly to grant an upgrade of the Palestinians status at the United Nations from "entity" to "non-member state," which would amount to the world body's implicit and symbolic recognition of the Palestinian statehood.
The United Nations and the international community as a whole are working together to turn the two-state solution into a reality at an early date. The two-state solution, widely backed by UN member states, means a secure Israel to live with an independent State of Palestine.
