FERGUSON, Mo. — Hundreds of protesters laid on the floor of a St. Louis shopping mall in protest of the Michael Brown grand jury decision, temporarily shutting the mall down.

KTVI-TV reported that the protesters laid for nearly five minutes on Friday afternoon, prompting the mall to close for a few hours.

The movement was organized on social media using the hashtags #NotOneDime,#Blacklivesmatter and #Stlblackfriday.

The demonstration was reportedly supposed to represent Michael Brown’s blood on the ground.

Police let the protesters peacefully demonstrate, according to various social media posts. No arrests were made.

The protesters have since moved to another location.

Rallies have been held nationwide to protest a grand jury’s recent decision not to indict the police officer who fatally shot 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson.
