More than two dozen people were hauled off by the police in Minneapolis as #BlackLivesMatter protests continued this weekend.
The rotunda at the Mall of America were packed as hundreds of people came out to stage a mass die-in, USAToday.com reports. The demonstration effectively disrupted shoppers, who poured into the halls to look over the balcony as protestors chanted “Black lives matter” and “no justice, no peace.”
An accurate report on the numbers has been hard to pin down, but more than 3,000 people stated that they would be coming out to the protest. Of course, we know that Facebook confirmations often don’t translate into equal attendance in real life.
