Black Lives Matter protesters block Minneapolis highway during rush hour following Philando Castile’s death

Black Lives Matter protesters shut down a highway during peak morning traffic in Minneapolis, one week after police killed unarmed black man Philando Castile at a traffic stop.

A few dozen protesters parked several cars across the Interstate 35W at University Avenue around 7.50am, shouted into microphones and held signs saying “Abolish Police”.

“I hate Illinois Nazis.”
