(WGN) – At Operation PUSH’s headquarters today Reverend Jesse Jackson Sr. was at the head of a peace demonstration to protest the decision by the St. Louis County grandly jury to not indict officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of Michael Brown.
In the aftermath of that, Reverend Jackson is now calling on President Obama to step in and issue an executive order, “And whether it’s police departments or fire depts or highways they can not get federal money at the same be unjust and not meet federal employment practices.”
The protest here in Chicago mirrors others held around the nation as well today.
SPECIAL: Make Barack Hussein Obama pay for his crimes against America. How much are you willing to take before you stand up and do something? This is your opportunity to be a true Patriot. Support the Tea Party Constitution Fund.
They come just one day after Black Friday protests encouraged and economic boycott to continue to raise awareness and increase pressure.
Back at Operation PUSH, Rev. Jackson was joined by Baltimore Maryland Pastor Reverend Jamal Bryant, who has been a leading voice in pushing for the economic boycott from last Wednesday to the upcoming Cyber Monday.
Together Jackson and Bryant are calling for an end to looting that took place in Ferguson, they also are pushing for a federal investigation in Brown’s death.
