Black Lives Matter protesters shut down Highway 101 exit ramp

A group of Black Lives Matter protesters Wednesday afternoon shut down an exit ramp for southbound U.S. Highway 101 to San Francisco International Airport.

The protesters posted photos of the action on Twitter at about 12:15 p.m., showing them linked hand-in-hand across the highway with a Christmas tree and a banner that said, “Justice for Mario Woods,” the man killed by San Francisco police officers earlier this month.

About 10 minutes later, another photo was posted of protesters in the back of a police car, followed by requests for support at jail in San Francisco. At about the same time, California Highway Patrol Capt. Christopher Sherry wrote on Twitter, “CHP has moved all protestors off of the freeway. Travelers will make it to the airport on-time!” CHP officials were not immediately available to provide further info on the protest.
