Dozens of officers watched the group.
The officers gave the protesters space, staying a block or two away sometimes while blocking roads for them until they made it back to City Hall and Levitt Pavilion.
Several people spoke, there was a long moment of silence and the crowd turned to the news cameras chanting, “Tell the truth. Tell the truth. Tell the truth.”
Some of the protesters were frustrated, felling their peaceful demonstration was conflated with those showing up and doing damage.
