Protestors storm Missouri governor’s office protesting National Guard presence, 8 people arrested

More than 100 protestors on Monday stormed Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon’s office in St. Louis demanding a meeting with state officials over National Guard presence in Ferguson.

When eight protestors refused to back down they were arrested just before 5:00 p.m., according to St. Louis Business Journal.

The crowd claimed to want justice and insisted that the National Guard leave Ferguson.

State officials offered to meet with one representative of the group, but the crowd refused, chanting, “Face one, face all.”

The protest was documented on Twitter, according to these tweets compiled by the Gateway Pundit:

Protests in the area erupted after the death of 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson, shot by a police officer.
