Peaceful March in Baltimore and Clashes with the Police in Philadelphia

WASHINGTON – Another day of protests against police brutality took place in several cities of the United States, and while the manifestations were peaceful in Baltimore, neighboring Philadelphia witnessed several clashes with the police.

With an eye on the curfew that begins at 22:00, thousands of people peacefully protested Thursday on the streets of Baltimore, like the day before, after Freddie Gray of the Black community succumbed to the injuries he suffered under police custody.

However, 170 kilometers (105.6 miles) away, the march at Philadelphia led to violent clashes between the protesters and the police.

Philadelphia, the largest city in Pennsylvania and the fifth-largest in the United States, has a 44 percent black population, a great number of whom came out on the streets in solidarity with those in Baltimore under the slogan “Philly (for Philadelphia) is Baltimore.”

Several more cities in the country showed their support for Baltimore, as around the week marches have been called at places, including New York, Chicago and Oakland, that have a large black population.

The Baltimore Police on Thursday handed to prosecutors a report on the death of Gray in police custody, revealing information about the circumstances of his detention and custody on April 12.
