Video: Ferguson, Missouri residents speak on social conditions, autoworkers struggle

More than one year has passed since the police murder of unarmed teenager Michael Brown in Ferguson Missouri. The peaceful protests that followed the killing were violently suppressed by police forces and the National Guard, which deployed military-grade vehicles and weapons against US citizens.

World Socialist Web Site reporters returned to Ferguson to ask residents for an update on the living conditions in this impoverished St Louis suburb. They discussed with Ferguson residents the ongoing fight of US autoworkers who, for the first time in decades, have voted down a sell-out contract pushed by the United Auto Workers union.
