Michael Brown Protesters To Stage ‘Die-In’ Outside The Linc Following Seahawks-Eagles Game. I See No Way This Can End Badly
Drunken Eagles fans streaming out of the Philadelphia Sports Complex later today -- possibly fuming over a loss to the Seahawks -- are going to encounter folks staging a 'die-in' to protest the Michael Brown and Eric Garner deaths. It will happen at a busy intersection (Broad & Patison), so of course heavy traffic will be involved. Happy Holidays, everyone!
Will this be live streamed somewhere? Because I'm more interested in watching this than I am in the game.

“After the Philadelphia Eagles game, the protesters will stage a "die-in" in the middle of the intersection,” a POWER spokeswoman said. “They will actually lay down in the middle of the street and stay there for four minutes and thirty seconds, symbolic of the four hours and thirty minutes that Mike Brown laid dead in the streets of Ferguson.”
Preachers, imams, priests and rabbis with POWER will lead the protest, according to the spokeswoman.
