Thanks to protests over no-indictment decisions by grand juries in the Michael Brown and Eric Garner cases (as well as claims that some East High students at a Wednesday rally chanted "Hit him again" after four Denver police officers were injured in a crash, one critically), another pair of demonstrations yesterday have received comparatively little attention. But the turnout was large and vocal on the 16th Street Mall for morning and afternoon actions in which Denver fast food workers called for a $15-per-hour wage and unionization rights -- part of a nationwide event involving as many as 190 cities.
