|WASHINGTON Dennis Johnson Celtics Jersey , Dec. 10 (Xinhua) -- NBA players, including Kobe Bryant and LeBron James, joined ongoing nationwide protests against police violence on Tuesday night.
Renewed protests erupted last week after a grand jury decided not to charge a white New York police officer over the chokehold death in July of a black American Eric Garner.
In the warming up for a Tuesday night home game, Los Angeles Lakers star Bryant and other players donned T-shirts with the words "I CAN'T BREATHE".
Cleveland Cavalier star LeBron James and others wore similar shirts before a game at the Barclays Center in the Brooklyn borough of New York on Monday.
The decision not to charge Pantaleo came roughly a week after a Missouri grand jury had failed to indict white police officer Darren Wilson for fatally shooting black teenager Michael Brown in August in the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson.
The two killings have highlighted strained relations between police and black Americans, rekindling a national debate over race relations in the country and spurring weeks of protests in major U.S. cities.

SHANGHAI, Sept. 2 (Xinhua) -- A list naming 13,732 Jewish refugees who took safe haven in China during World War II carved into a 34-meter-long copper wall was unveiled in Shanghai on Tuesday.
Constructed in the Shanghai Jewish Refugee Museum at the former site of Ohel Moshe Synagogue, the monument was opened to the public the day before the 69th anniversary of China's victory in the anti-Japanese war.
"The list is particularly meaningful. All of [the refugees] survived harsh days in the war and sheltered in Shanghai", said Sonja Muehlberger Avery Bradley Celtics Jersey , 75, a German activist who was born into a Jewish family in Shanghai in 1939.
Names of her family were also on the list, which originated from the appendix of Exile in Shanghai:1938-1947, a German book exploring the time period.
Sonja contributed to the book and proofread the list, which was initially compiled by three Jewish girls during the war.
"Shanghai was the only place in the world open to Jewish refugees. We will never forget the city," said Sonja.
ORIENTAL NOAH'S ARK
Shanghai gained fame as a refuge for those fleeing Germany in World War II Aron Baynes Celtics Jersey , accommodating about 20,000 Jewish refugees at the height of the war, said Pan Guang, a researcher at Shanghai Academy of Social Sciences.
Japanese invaders restricted their residences to the so called ghetto for stateless refugees in northeastern Shanghai's Hongkou District.
China's anti-Japanese war was an important part of the World Anti-Fascist War. Despite being incomplete, the list is a precious record to mark the period's history, Pan said.
In the 1930s and 40s Amir Johnson Celtics Jersey , Shanghai granted access to Jews who escaped from the Nazi Holocaust in Europe, where 6 million Jews were massacred.
Thousands of Jewish refugees flooded into Shanghai via two major channels: on a sea route from Europe to Southeast Asia and then to Shanghai; those from Eastern European took train across Eurasia, Siberia into the northeast China, and then arrived in Shanghai.
In Shanghai, they built a community life and shared with the woes of the Chinese people living under Japanese occupation.
The Shanghai Jewish Refugee Museum and the Jewish Jewish Studies Center of Shanghai Academy of Social Sciences have jointly collected and studied information on the city's refugees, said Pan.
A database of the recorded names has been set up and opened to public inquiries.
At least 500 Jewish babies were born during the refugee period and became collectively known as "Shanghai Babies."
Sonja was a "Shanghai Baby" born at a hospital in the concession area of Shanghai. Her father Al Horford Celtics Jersey , Hermann Krips, left the space blank when naming for his newly-born daughter, instead calling her "Baby Krips."
Three "Shanghai babies" were also believed to be the original producers of the name list, Sonja said. .
The occupying Japanese authorities hired the girls to type a name list of all Jewish refugees to take "census."
Aged 14,15 and 16 years old, Sonja Poizner Walter Brown Jersey , Eva Zunterstein and Helga Ross, worked on "antique" typewriters and tempered by serious doubt about the nature and purpose of the information.
They finally presented a "defective" list despite verbal pressure and the occasional bribe of a cup of hot chocolate.
APPLICATION FOR "WORLD MEMORY"
Shanghai's Hongkou District, site of the former refugee ghetto,proposed making the neighborhood a world heritage site to further protect the area and preserve the ability to study the area's history and relics.
"Shanghai applied for 'World Heritage' status with the gradually completed Jewish refugees list, data bank, dictatin.
