MADISON Rafinha Brazil Jersey , the United States, March 10 (Xinhua) -- Some 300 protesters Tuesday descended on City Council Chambers in Madison, Wisconsin, to protest the fatal shooting of black teen Tony Robinson by a police officer last week.

The demonstration was also aimed at resisting systematic injustice that is occurring in Madison and voicing opposition to renovations to a jail in the city, the protesters said.

"A new jail is state violence," Matthew Braunginn Philippe Coutinho Brazil Jersey , co-organizer and co-leader with Young, Gifted, and Black, a student organization, told Xinhua.
