U.S. Protesters Honor Martin Luther King, Reclaim His Legacy in Wave of Actions

Washington, January 20 (RHC)-- Protesters across the United States held more than 50 actions on Monday to honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. by reclaiming his radical legacy and condemning police killings of unarmed African Americans.

Marches and acts of civil disobedience under the banner of "Reclaim MLK" were held from Oakland to Chicago to St. Louis to New York and Denver, Colorado, where an estimated 30,000 people were in the streets.

In a statement, the group Ferguson Action said: "We resist efforts to reduce a long history marred with the blood of countless members of our community into iconic images of men in suits behind pulpits. This MLK weekend we will walk in the legacy of Dr. King and the movement that raised him."
