Hundreds Fill Cincinnati Streets For Black Lives Matter

Protests over shootings block roads in U.S. cities arrests made

But the hundreds of people didn't stay there.

For its part, the Working Group stated that excessive use of force by the police against African-Americans in the USA is a "regular" occurrence, with African-Americans reportedly shot at more than twice the rate of white people.

At the rally, the Rev. Matthew Watley, of Reid Temple AME Church, said people are looking for healing after having old wounds of racism reopened by the events last week.

A radio station also confirmed that one of its reporters was arrested in the protests.

The protests began Saturday with demands for accountability from police and stretched into Sunday in Baton Rouge and St. Paul, where tensions are most raw after the deaths of Alton Sterling in the Louisiana city and of Philando Castile in a St. Paul suburb.

She said the Vancouver rally is about reminding Canadians about past wrongs.

Ashley Harrington, who serves on the steering committee of the local Black Lives Matter group, said it was "extremely important" to have a mass, organized, disciplined march.

The consequences Allen was referring to was the sniper ambush that resulted in the killings of five Dallas Police officers.

He acknowledged a Baton Rouge officer pointed an assault weapon at protesters, but he said a supervisor immediately intervened to secure the weapon from her.

The black Army veteran insisted on speaking with a black negotiator and wrote in blood on the wall of a parking garage where police cornered and later killed him, Dallas police chief David Brown said.

"It absolutely is on our radar", Yolanda Smith, executive director of the NAACP Houston branch, said Sunday about Braziel's shooting.

"We want zero arrests". Justice! When do we want it?

President Barack Obama plans to travel to Dallas on Tuesday at the invitation of the mayor to speak at an interfaith memorial service for the slain officers, the White House announced Sunday.

While many are hopeful for change in police-community relations, they say there's still a long way to go.

The Facebook event said it was to be a peaceful protest, and it was.

Spivey-Spinner, who founded Project X, a non-violent suicide prevention campaign in 2010, said she is organizing the Black Lives Matter protest to bring the community together to "peacefully - without anger - understand what is going on with us killing each other".

"I would hope that police organisations are also respectful of the frustrations that people in these communities feel and not just dismiss these protests as political correctness or politics or attacks on police", he said.

Police arrested one spectator after that person caused a disturbance, Balderrama said.

The President is still facing questions about the feeling among law enforcement that he sides more with the activists over police officers.

"The police tactics in response have been very moderate".

"I have two grandnieces who are biracial and I hate for them to face discrimination by the police", he said.

While numerous demonstrations nationwide remained peaceful, scuffles broke out overnight Saturday in St. Paul, Minnesota, where protesters clashed with police on Interstate 94.

The sense of crisis deepened last week when a black man shot dead five white cops in Dallas, shocking the nation and the world.
