Protestors shut down the I-880 in Oakland, with a sit in. Effective way to get attention real fast, peacefully, if they could just keep people's emotions from running amuck

Demonstrators shut down a major highway in Oakland Thursday night to protest the recent police shootings of black men.

All lanes of Interstate Highway 880 have been reopened early Friday morning following the night of protests.

The protest, called by the groups Live Free and the Anti-Police Terror Project, started at 7 p.m. at Frank Ogawa Plaza with a group of 100 protestors and quickly grew to about 2,000 people.

By 1:15 a.m., all protestors were cleared out and the freeway was reopened.
