EUGENE, Ore. -- For the eighth night in a row, protesters took to the streets to bring attention to the Black Lives Matter movement.
At 6 p.m. about 300 people had gathered at the federal courthouse in Eugene. Protesters then marched on Franklin Boulevard toward Matthew Knight Arena.
Speakers called for police demilitarization, more transparent policing policies, and the resignation of Eugene Police Chief Chris Skinner.
The protests come after a black man died at the hands of a Minneapolis police officer. Four officers are facing charges in connection with the death of George Floyd.
Organizer Clea Ibrahim said that she expects protests will continue for the days to come.
"We have more names to get justice for. We are on our way to getting justice for George Floyd. We have Breanna we have Eric, we have DeMar, we have Micheal, we have Sandra. We have all these names to get justice for. So I don't see this slowing down anytime soon."
During the protest, one group of around 75 splintered off after a disagreement about how radically policing should change.
At around 10:30 p.m. around 100 protesters gathered at the Lane County Jail, blocking traffic and chanting. It is unclear if it was in any way associated with the earlier organized protest.
