A group of around 60 people gathered Sunday in front of the American Embassy in the Danish capital, Copenhagen, to protest against a grand jury decision in the U.S. not to indict a white police officer in the fatal shooting of an unarmed black teenager in Ferguson, Missouri. 

The group chanted slogans "black lives matter" and "no to racism," against the jury decision on the killing of 18-year-old Michael Brown in August 2014 by police officer Darren Wilson.

The demonstrations in Copenhagen are following the events in Germany, where more than 100 people gathered Saturday at the Brandenburg Gate to protest against the decision.

"We are just about to start up, around 60 people have showed up, both as individuals and as representatives of an organisation of some kind," Josef W. Nielsen, the president of the African Empowerment Center Denmark -- the organizer of the Copenhagen protest -- told The Anadolu Agency.

"It is very important to make a statement to the world that racism in no way can be tolerated, and that the case in Ferguson is a clear case of racism," Nielsen said. 

Activists in Ferguson and supporters from across the U.S. gathered Saturday to begin a 120-mile march from Ferguson to the state capital in Jefferson City. 

Organized by the National Association for the Advancement of Coloured People, the march aims to gain support for demands to overhaul police procedures in the U.S. 

Wilson, the police officer who shot Brown, resigned Saturday from the Ferguson Police Department after it had received threats of violence if he remained an employee, according to a report by local St. Louis Post-Dispatch newspaper.
