Garner protestors outside Will & Kate NBA game

On Monday evening, protesters gathered outside the Barclay Centre in New York, where the Duke and the Duchess of Cambridge were watching an NBA game.

Protestors staged a “die-in” in front of the Brooklyn stadium before the game began. Some wore “I can’t breathe” t-shirts.

The protests began after a New York grand jury's failure to indict a police officer who was caught on camera with Eric Garner in a chokehold. The chokehold killed Eric Garner. Garner could be heard repeatedly saying “I can’t breathe” as he was being held. A number of policeman in the video watched on without intervening.
