Kids Take Part In Ferguson Protests (PHOTOS)

Children in Ferguson have been protesting along with their families since the shooting of Michael Brown on Aug. 9. They have joined the marches day and night, sporting T-shirts in support of Brown and often holding their arms up in protest, chanting, "Hands up! Don't shoot!" They have also participated in art tributes to Brown and helped with community food drives.

Protests erupted in this St. Louis suburb after officer Darren Wilson shot 18-year-old Brown, who was unarmed, on Aug. 9. After some violent clashes between police and demonstrators, things now seem to be calmer.

Here are some of the children who have taken part in activism in the wake of Brown's death:

On the afternoon of Aug. 23, protesters march along Canfield Drive, where Michael Brown was shot. They passed a truck of food donations being given to the community by Crisis Aid International, the St. Louis Police and Ferguson Mayor James Knowles.

5. You are so welcome Mira.

I am in the mood to cry. This does that, yet I still have hope that the children will have something better.

I posted something tonight. It is time that the baton is passed. The children need to take it and run with it. Not the babies right now, yet they too will learn, actually they already know.The other generation is ready, they are here. They need to finish what was started.

Peace~

A young boy leads a dance circle during a protest on Aug. 22. A small group began to dance and sing, "No justice, no peace, take it back, take it back, no justice, no peace, it's the remix y'all."
