Police Begin Arresting Protesters in Ferguson Trying to Block Interstate

Protesters in Ferguson, Missouri again took to the streets on Wednesday, a month after the fatal shooting of Michael Brown. The number of protesters appears to number in the dozens and, the Associated Press reports, “[o]rganizers say they want to bring rush hour traffic on I-70 in Ferguson to a standstill and expect to be arrested.”

Here’s more from the AP:

Groups of protesters were gathering in the middle of a road near interstate on-ramps Wednesday ahead of their plans to block access to the highway. After being warned to stay out of the street, some refused, and an Associated press reporter saw at least 7 cuffed by police… The Missouri State Highway Patrol and city and county police departments say they will “enforce the law and ensure public safety” at the protest.
