Rev. Jesse Jackson Calls for Peace after Ferguson

Sunday, 30 Nov 2014 08:17 PM

The Rev. Jesse Jackson called for peace and perseverance on Sunday as he urged congregants in Portland to keep fighting for racial justice.

He gave a morning sermon at Emmanuel Temple, a day after 10 people were arrested in Portland following a protest related to the Ferguson, Missouri, police shooting.

The Oregonian says Jackson criticized the grand jury that decided Monday not to indict Ferguson police Officer Darren Wilson. But Jackson also took aim at other systemic and national racial disparities.

Jackson delivered a similar speech at a gathering Saturday night. Portland police say that after Jackson left, some protesters marched around downtown and sporadically disrupted traffic. Officials say some bottles were thrown at officers and a police car was damaged.

The nine adults and one juvenile arrested will face charges that include disorderly conduct.
