NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — Staten Island residents have been bracing for what they expect to be a crowd in the thousands Saturday, for the Rev. Al Sharpton’s march to protest the police custody death of Eric Garner.
As CBS 2 Political Reporter Marcia Kramer reported, former Gov. David Paterson will join Sharpton at the head of the “We Will Not Go Back” march and rally. The march is expected to begin at 11 a.m. at 204 Bay St. across from Tompkinsville Park in Staten Island, where Garner was killed.
“No parking” signs were set up Friday along the march route, where 15,000 people were expected to fill the streets in the neighborhood Garner called home.
