WASHINGTON — Protests are being planned throughout Tuesday in the nation’s capital and Baltimore in the wake of a grand jury’s decision not to indict a white police officer who killed a black 18-year-old in Ferguson, Missouri.

In Washington, one group is planning to occupy various buildings over a 28-hour period, including Metro police headquarters.

Outside the White House Monday, dozens of people waved signs and chanted “justice for Michael Brown” after marching through the streets.

In downtown Baltimore, the Baltimore People’s Power Assembly is planning an “emergency response protest” in McKeldin Square at 4 p.m., followed by a march past the federal building. Another group is planning to march on Baltimore City Hall at 6 p.m.
