This Map Shows How Outrage Over The Eric Garner And Mike Brown Decisions Went Global

People all over the world are outraged about the failure to indict the police officers who killed Eric Garner and Michael Brown.

The proof is an animated map released by Twitter last week that shows the prevalence of tweets around the world using the hashtags #ICantBreathe, #BlackLivesMatter and #HandsUpDontShoot — three prominent rallying cries of a growing movement to hold police accountable for violence against black Americans. Twitter limited the time period of the map below from Nov. 24 (the day of the Michael Brown decision) to Dec. 4 (the day after the Eric Garner decision). And as you can see, the tweets light up much of the globe.
