Police arrested 64 protesters Tuesday afternoon in Louisville, Kentucky after some refused to leave the roadway. Hundreds of activists – some of them armed – had been marching throughout the city to protest police violence and the killing of Breonna Taylor.
The activists have been charged with obstructing a roadway and disorderly conduct.
“Until Freedom” was co-founded by Linda Sarsour and Tamika Mallory, both of whom are former co-chairs of the Women’s March.
