The revolution was televised during Monday Night Football. Hundreds of Ferguson, Mo., protesters who attended the St. Louis Rams game raised their voices and banners in protest of the August killing of Michael Brown by Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson.

Protesters in the stands could be heard chanting, "Hands up, don't shoot," and "Black lives matter." In addition to the protests, various videos were posted on social media that showed what was actually going on during the game. 


The hashtag #nojusticenofootball trended for most of the night. If people weren't able to join the protests in person, they were able to follow the event on social media:



And in case you were wondering, a game did actually take place and San Francisco defeated the Rams, but most important, the voices of hundreds were heard and it was televised.
