Thousands of people marched through the streets from New York City to San Francisco for a second straight night following the grand jury decision not to indict a white New York City police officer, Daniel Pantaleo, on criminal charges in the chokehold death of an unarmed black man, Eric Garner.

Protesters of all colors blocked traffic, staged “die-ins” and chanted slogans such as “black lives matter.” They gathered near the Holland Tunnel, the Manhattan Bridge and on the Westside Highway, temporarily shutting them down. The NYPD said it arrested 223 people on Thursday night. More protests are planned for tonight.
