FERGUSON, Mo. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Protesters in 40 cities are set to gather for a National Day of Rage, hoping to spark change after Michael Brown's shooting death in Ferguson, Missouri.

The rallies were organized by a group called Anonymous, which is demanding the arrest of the officer who shot the unarmed teen on August 9.

But it's expected to take a grand jury until mid-October to decide whether or not to charge Officer Darren Wilson.

The shooting has led to violent protests for weeks, but Thursday, Missouri Governor Jay Nixon ordered the National Guard to leave Ferguson.

Since Brown's death, nearly 200 people have been arrested in the city's protesting area.
