FERGUSON, MO (KTVI)- The weekend of resistance will be wrapping up with a demonstration later Monday morning. Protesters are calling October 13th, “Moral Monday.”

Many of them have been training for this non violent demonstration. Moral Monday is set to start at 10a.m. at Wellspring Church.

At least 1,000 protesters gathered in the Shaw Neighborhood late Sunday night. They were chanting about their anger over brutality and racism that they say exists in law enforcement and the legal system.

They split into two groups at one point.

One group of protesters marched to the Grove Neighborhood. As they started throwing around a volley ball and jumping rope they began to chant, “This is what a game looks like. We aren’t playing games.”

At that point, the group marched to the Quik Trip located 904 S. Vandeventer Avenue at Chouteau. Police were there waiting. The gas station had already been closed as a precautionary measure. That crowd keep going and joined the other group of protesters at Saint Louis University.

SLU students were taking pictures and video of the group. Some protesters told them to stop watching and join the demonstration.  As a result, several students joined the protest.

FOX 2 cameras did not capture any violence.

Police have confirmed that no arrests were made.
