Congressional staffers staged a walkout at about 3:30 this afternoon (Thursday) to protest the Michael Brown and Eric Garner grand jury decisions.
Online posts show at least 100 staff members on the steps of the Capitol, holding their hands up.
“Black staffers on Capitol Hill wanted to do something in support of ongoing national and global protests against police aggression,” an organizer told The Daily Beast before the protest.
