    ST. LOUIS, Missouri: US civil rights activists embarked on Saturday (Sunday in Manila) on a seven-day march to demand sweeping police reforms and denounce a grand jury’s decision not to indict a white officer who shot dead an unarmed black teenager. The officer involved, 28-year-old Darren Wilson, resigned from the police citing safety concerns, according to a letter published by local media on Saturday. The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) organized the 120-mile (192-kilometer) “Journey for Justice,” heading from the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson, where Michael Brown was killed, to Missouri state capital Jefferson City.
