SALT LAKE CITY — About 100 protesters, most of them Native Americans, gathered at City Creek Center for a protest on Saturday that caught police and mall security off-guard.
The demonstrators arrived tonight around 7 p.m. and began chanting and beating on drums for a cause that seems to have started in Canada and moved south.
The protesters were asked to leave City Creek Center by security guards as well as the Salt Lake City Police Department, and they complied. The protesters moved to the corner of 100 South and Main Street, where they continued their peaceful demonstration.
The protesters said they are participating in the Idle No More movement, which originated in Canada about three months ago.
