Large crowds and what looked like hundreds of cyclists crossed over the Brooklyn Bridge as part of a Black Lives Matter protest Saturday afternoon.
Many marching could be seen wearing yellow. Something that's been seen by the "wall of moms" protesting in Portland, Oregon.
The demonstration Saturday began at Cadman Plaza and continued over the bridge using the roadway, not the pedestrian crossway.
Demonstrators said it's important for people to continue to show up.
“We can't stop applying pressure, because it's never going to be convenient for anyone,” one protester said. “I’m sure everyone would love to be laying down on a Saturday evening with all their rights, equality, equity, access to health care. But we don't have those things and so we continue to march, we find new ways to do it, and we do it with consistency."
The police presence was large, specifically on the Manhattan side of the bridge near City Hall, but there were no reports of any clashes with protesters.
The protest Saturday was much larger than protests seen in recent days across the city.
