Protesters in New York announced a march on 5th Avenue to defy Mayor DeBlasio’s moratorium on demonstrations after two NYPD cops were slaughtered. The Twitter account @MillionsMarch posted a sign that said to meet at 59th and 5th. Another Twitter account posted a sign that said “No Christmas shopping as usual.”

These protesters are determined to shut down the famous 5th Avenue in an attempt to somehow find justice for Eric Garner. Their behavior is causing mayhem in New York and interfering with innocent businesses during the busiest time of the year. Witnesses do not care if others are disrupted.

Anonymous even decided to poke their heads into the commotion.

Other witnesses continue to post pictures of the protest on social media.

It appears the protest is now winding down.
