WASHINGTON (AP) — Protesters blocked traffic in the District of Columbia a third day in a row, this time on the 14th Street Bridge.

Protesters lay in the roadway or stood holding hands and signs during the Monday morning commute. Police were at the scene and put up yellow tape to separate the protesters from stopped traffic.

The protesters demonstrated against the Ferguson, Missouri, grand jury decision last week declining to indict a white police officer for shooting an unarmed black teenager. They carried signs that read, “Accountability for killer cops” and “Black lives matter.”

On Sunday, police took a group of protesters into custody after they blocked traffic on the Southeast-Southwest Freeway of Interstate 395. On Saturday, protesters blocked streets in Georgetown and in the Pentagon City area of Arlington County.
