A protester is seen with his hands raised in the air. A collective gesture for most protesters was to put their hands in the air as if they were signaling their surrender.


Handmade signs express the feelings of the protesters. They read: “Who do you protect, who do you serve,” and “Stop killing our sons.” Chants of “Hands up, Dont’ Shoot, Police Brutality,” could also be heard from the crowd.


A line of police officers and protesters face each other in downtown Dallas on Nov. 25, the day after a St. Louis County grand jury decision to not indict police officer Darren Wilson in the shooting of Michael Brown on Aug. 9.


A map that shows the route that the protesters walked to get to I-35E. Once there, several people blocked traffic on the interstate for a couple of hours until police corralled them off the interstate. Two of the seven arrested were UNT students.


Protesters march under the Commerce Street bridge on their way to I-35E. The march began at Dallas police headquarters located at 1400 S. Lamar St.
