Wednesday afternoon, approximately 1,500 protesters convened in downtown Minneapolis for a march down Washington Avenue and across the Hennepin Avenue bridge.  The march was organized by Black Lives Matter Minneapolis in response to the death of Freddie Gray who died while in police custody in Baltimore on April 12.  Minneapolis Police blocked traffic for the demonstrators, but otherwise had little interaction with the group and made no arrests.  KFAI's Ryan Dawes takes us on-location to the march.
