Lots of activity, of late, at Saint Louis University, the Jesuit university of St. Louis, Mo., following a recent shooting in a neighborhood near SLU. Stltoday.com reports:
Last Sunday, a group protesting the fatal shooting of Vonderitt Myers Jr. by St. Louis police left the Shaw neighborhood where he was killed on Oct. 8, marched up Grand Boulevard and didn’t stop until they found themselves on St. Louis University’s campus.
And they haven’t left.Advertisement
They call themselves Occupy SLU. It’s an offshoot of the larger protests of police shootings that have sprung up in the area following the Aug. 9 shooting of Michael Brown by Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson.
The first night saw more than 1,000 people, many of them students, assembled in front of the university’s clock tower singing and chanting for equality and racial justice.
