Protest planned in Philadelphia following Eagles-Seahawks game
The protest is being organized by a Philadelphia clergy group called POWER (Philadelphia Organized to Witness Empower & Rebuild) and is taking place across the country. It is in response to the grand jury decisions in the cases of Michael Brown and Eric Garner.
Protestors will lie down in the intersection of Broad Street and Pattison Avenue outside the stadium once the game is completed. They will stay there for four and a half minutes, which represents the four hours and 30 minutes Brown laid in a Ferguson, Mo., street after being killed.
Last weekend, five Rams players used the "Hands Up, Don't Shoot" gesture before their game. An NFL executive told ESPN's Adam Schefter he wouldn't be surprised if there are more players who use the "Hands Up, Don’t Shoot" message at Sunday's games.
