In the wake of the Michael Brown shooting in Ferguson, Missouri, local activists flooded Daley Plaza protesting all police shootings.
The protest was part of a National Moment of Silence. At 6:20 p.m. the protesters called for four minutes of silence and held hands while raising their arms in the sign of surrender.
After the demonstration, a separate group led by local activist, Paul McKinley, staged a march. After marching around the Daley Center several times the protesters marched through the Loop.
They took to the street, snarling traffic. They were finally stopped at the Northern Trust Building where police ordered them to remain on the sidewalk.
The complied and marched back to Daley Plaza.
