Sharing is Caring!

More than two dozen protesters were arrested over clashes with cops in Chicago and Seattle Saturday as civil unrest over police brutality continued across the country.

Heated protests were reported in Chicago, where 24 demonstrators were arrested, according to WGN9.

Youth activist groups organized in downtown Chicago, where they were peppered sprayed as they demanded the defunding of the city’s police department and the abolishment of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

One of the groups, Good Kids, Mad City, posted to Twitter that two of their organizers were “beaten and arrested.” A video from the group appears to show officers kettling protesters on the street.

“Cops are separating & surrounding protesters! They won’t let people leave!” the group wrote on Twitter.
