MONTEREY, Calif. (Monterey Herald)—What began as a peaceful and lawful demonstration to raise awareness about police brutality against people of color ended Saturday with several arrests after the protest unlawfully moved onto Highway 1, blocking southbound traffic for several minutes.

The eight demonstrators who were taken into custody face misdemeanor charges, Monterey Assistant Police Chief Dave Hober said.

The protest, dubbed “Black and Brown Lives Matter,” began at 10 a.m. outside Custom House Plaza, progressed with a parade through the commercial area of Fisherman’s Wharf, and proceeded down Alvarado Street to Monterey’s Metro Station Plaza, where several of the demonstrators spoke to a crowd of about 50 using a bullhorn. Several of the protests were students at CSU Monterey Bay.
