SALT LAKE CITY – Protesters in Salt Lake City temporarily blocked freeway on-ramp and off-ramps and slowed traffic on downtown streets Friday night, and they were marching against police violence.
A photo from the scene of the protest shows several people with signs marching down State Street with cars slowed behind them.
The protesters later blocked the on-ramp that leads from 500 South to I-15 and I-80 for a few minutes. Police arrived shortly after the on-ramp was blocked, and at that point the protesters moved on. They then blocked the freeway off-ramp from I-15/I-80 at 600 South. They moved again, around when police arrived at that location around 8 p.m.
There were about two dozen people protesting.
