St. Louis protesters arrested in weekend of mass civil disobedience

As a mass civil disobedience campaign in Ferguson, Missouri pushed on through the weekend, police arrested more than a dozen protesters early Sunday who were staging a symbolic sit-in at a gas station nearby in St. Louis.

The demonstrators taken into custody were among a 100-strong crowd who gathered outside a QuikTrip gas station in the early hours of Sunday morning calling for justice in the August 9 shooting of unarmed 18-year-old Michael Brown by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson.
