Hundreds of demonstrators gathered in the Cedar-Riverside area of Minneapolis (Minnesota) on Wednesday evening, November 4, to protest alleged police brutality, among other issues. The rally began at around 19:00 (local time) when activists marched through downtown Minneapolis towards Cedar-Riverside and later occupied the I-94 highway, forcing its closure. Reports indicate that several arrests were made, although no injuries were reported.
Further demonstrations are to be expected across the country in the coming days. A heightened security presence and localized disruptions are possible in the vicinity of all demonstrations.
Those in Minneapolis are advised to monitor the situation, avoid all demonstrations and political gatherings, and heed any instructions issued by local authorities.
