Minneapolis, MN – About 50 people were arrested here, the night of Nov. 16, in a dramatic protest blocking Interstate 94, as the fight to get justice for Jamar Clark escalated. Clark, who is Black, was killed by Minneapolis police. Witnesses agree that he was handcuffed at the time of his murder.

Protesters are demanding that police release the video they recorded at the time of the killing.

Earlier in the day, Michael McDowell, an organizer with Black Lives Matter Minneapolis, stated
