CHICAGO -- Protesters marched through the streets of downtown Chicago Thursday during the height of the Christmas Eve shopping rush.

The demonstrators called for change and disrupted streets and sidewalks. Their message was, in part, for Mayor Rahm Emanuel to resign over the Laquan McDonald video.

Chicago police set up a blockade at Michigan and Oak Street and would not allow demonstrators to cross over to Lake Shore Drive.  At the same time, shoppers weren't allowed to cross the line either.

Demonstrators tried to block the entrances to a few shops, including the H&M store on Michigan Ave, but police wouldn't allow it and made them move on.
