Chicago Protesters: 'We're Here To Ask For Justice'

Newsy caught up with protesters who marched on Chicago's Magnificent Mile in response to the fatal police shooting of Laquan McDonald.

"We're marching ultimately for the black community to have the authority in our own neighborhoods. That's black self-determination. We're calling for black community control of the police."

"The city, from what we can tell, covered up basically a murder, for either political gains or what have you. And that's wrong. And people need to stand up and say that. And we need to see real change happen."

"You want to see the change, and understand that we are all God's children and that at the end of the day, we all deserve that chance to live, all deserve that chance to provide for our families." 

"We're here to ask for justice, to ask for responses to make sure the public officials do what they're supposed to do, which is to serve the public, protect the public."

"We want change in this Illinios state. And we want change in the way they treat black and brown people. And so that's why we're here — for change."
