"No one resisted arrest, Blair said. Police did not use any visible force, though Blair said a couple of protesters were forced onto their knees."
"It is an affirmation of life in the face of so much Black death. It was also organized in response to police involved shooting deaths of Philando Castille and Alton Sterling last week.... The group wants changes to laws and they also want more police accountability."

One Twitter account holder noted that demonstrations such as the #Afromation protest in Baltimore are a form of civil disobedience that should be respected as a part of citizens' rights to free speech.

If the following tweet is any indication, arrested demonstrators were finally being processed and released in the early hours of Sunday morning. There is no information regarding whether or not the minors were handled differently from the adults.
