Protests In SLC Continue Monday Night

Hundreds of people gathered at the Salt Lake City and County Building Monday evening.

Organized by the Party for Socialism and Liberation, speakers in Washington Square Park called for major police reforms and an end to the capitalist system they said supports injustice.  It was a more peaceful protest against police brutality

Organizers pleaded with the crowd to disperse as an 8 p.m. curfew ordered by Salt Lake City Mayor Erin Mendenhall descended on the protest.  Most protesters did. Others made their way to the Utah Capitol building and gathered across the street from a line of Utah Highway Patrol troopers guarding the Capitol steps.
