PICTURE: Besiktas fans show solidarity with the people of Ferguson with a Mike Brown poster v Arsenal
A couple of Besiktas fans decided to use the Champions League match against Arsenal as an occasion to show solidarity with the people of Ferguson, Missouri.
For anyone who may have been off the grid over the past week, the small American town of Ferguson has been front page news throughout the world after a black unarmed teenager, Mike Brown, was shot dead by police. That incident has lead to violence on the streets of the American town amid claims of racial discrimination aimed at the police.
As the trouble is Missouri continues unabated, some Besiktas fans decided to their support for the local community in Ferguson with a politically motivated poster for the match against the Gunners.
The image has since gone viral on social media.
