On Monday an Ohio grand jury declined to indict the two officers involved in the shooting death of 12-year-old Tamir Rice in November 2014; Tuesday afternoon in St. Petersburg there’s a protest to support Tamir Rice and oppose police violence. It’s at Grand Central Station on Central Avenue at 34th Street from 4:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m.

WMNF News interviewed Gazi Kodzo, a spokesperson for the Uhuru movement:
