Hundreds of Black Lives Matter protesters disrupted holiday travel in several states Wednesday with protests blocking access roads to airports and shutting down the Mall of America. In southern California, a group of protesters shut down the southbound 405 Freeway in Inglewood around 2pm to block traffic on the usually traffic clogged highway (picturedtop). Once stopped, the protesters exited their cars and spray painted the road with slogans and the names of African American victims killed by law enforcement in recent years. In northern California, CHP officers arrested nine women after they forced an exit ramp on US Highway 101 leading to the San Francisco International Airport to close. In likely the biggest protest scene in the US Wednesday, hundreds of Black Lives Matter protesters descended on the Mall of America and Minnesota’s main airport (below), staging a rally that caused holiday travel chaos.
