Uhurus to rally at city council



ST. PETERSBURG-- The International People's Democratic Uhuru Movement will rally at City Hall today to demand reparations for four black families with relatives that were killed by law enforcement officials.

They are seeking justice for Javon Dawson, Jarrell Walker, Marquell McCullough and TyRon Lewis.

We'd be surprised if the council even acknowledged the protestors. Last time the Uhurus showed up at a council meeting, they didn't get much love.
