Black Lives Matter Protesters Target Minnesota Mall And Airport
Officials say arrests were made at the Mall of America and at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.By Katie Link | December 23, 2015
Two days before Christmas it's hard to find two places busier than a mall and an airport. So that's exactly where Black Lives Matter protesters in Minnesota went to demonstrate Wednesday.
Last year, more than 1,500 people gathered at the Mall of America to protest police violence. This year, they planned to do the same and succeeded, sort of.
After the 2014 mall protest reportedly ended in arrests and poor sales numbers, officials worked to block protesters from doing it again. A Minnesota judge upheld temporary restraining orders against three Black Lives Matter protesters just one day before the planned action. (Video via WCCO)
