Protests have sparked across the US following the decision of a Ferguson grand jury not to indict the white policeman for the shooting of Michael Brown, an unarmed black teenager.

Rallies have been reported in the country's largest cities, including Houston, Washington, Los Angeles, Boston, San Francisco, New York, Chicago and Phoenix. Police in several cities took precautions but the demonstrations have been largely peaceful.

In New York, hundreds of protesters gathered in Times Square holding black signs with white letters that read “Racism kills,” “We will not remain silent” and “No justice, no peace, no racist police.”

Another group of demonstrators also gathered in South Manhattan, in Union Square and there was a third rally in Harlem, where a sign asking for “Justice for Michael Brown” was held.

Meanwhile, in Washington hundreds of people gathered at the White House yelling “Hands up, do not shoot!.”

In San Francisco, a dozen people gathered in the Mission District chanting "No justice, no peace!."
