Baptist minister and activist Al Sharpton was among those protesting in memory of Eric Garner outside the US District Court in Brooklyn on Saturday, just over a year after he was killed by police officers in the New York borough of Staten Island.

Sharpton was joined by over 100 protesters, many of them carrying anti-racist placards. Garner was killed as he was put in a choke hold by police officer Daniel Pantaleo on July 17, 2014.
