DC protesters march through streets in solidarity with Baltimore

Hundreds of protesters marched through the streets of Washington D.C. in solidarity with the people of Baltimore.

The group DCFerguson announced Wednesday they were rallying for Freddie Gray, an unarmed black man who died after suffering a significant spinal injury while in police custody, in addition to supporting the protesters in Baltimore.

Riots broke out on the streets of Baltimore Monday, just hours after the funeral of Gray.

"It's a human issue," said one protester. "It's an issue that all of us face waking up in the morning and not being able to be the full version of ourselves. I think the instrumentality of people coming together provides the most representational form of that mentality."

Wednesday night's march in D.C. started off in the Chinatown area, stopped by the Wilson Building and reached the White House causing rolling street closures throughout the city.

The protesters said they vow to continue these demonstrations until someone listens.

Protests in New York City, Boston, Houston and Indianapolis also occurred Wednesday night. Multiple arrests of demonstrators in New York City have been reported.
