Demonstrators protest forum cancellation at Mo. History Museum

Posted: Updated:
ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

More than one hundred protesters demonstrated outside of the Missouri History Museum Thursday night after a forum on the issues in Ferguson was canceled.

The forum was supposed to include a panel discussing the turmoil in Ferguson and in Palestine. Officials with the museum had an issue with drawing a comparison between the two, releasing a statement, which said, in part, "In its current format the program no longer resembles the original concept the Museum agreed to co-host… after much consideration we decided the complexities of this issue could not be adequately addressed in this format."

There are currently no plans to reschedule the event.
