Protests over the police shooting of Michael Brown and the subsequent heavy-handed, militarized response have spread beyond Ferguson.

Follow along with nationwide protests by tracking #Ferguson and #NMOS14 on twitter.

These are primarily from protests the evening of Aug. 14th when there were calls for a National Moment of Silence (NMOS14). Here's an article about how NMOS14 came together. Feminista Jones was one of the key organizers.

This article has loads of photos from protests in many cities.
