Chicago police have so far arrested five people in tonight's protest in downtown.

The crowd has grown since the march started around 1 p.m. this afternoon.  But it has remained peaceful for the most part, stopping at points for moments of silence for both Eric Garner and Michael Brown.

Demonstrators are protesting a grand jury’s decision not to indict a New York City police officer for the chokehold death of Garner as well as a similar decision in Ferguson, Missouri.

Among those arrested were a 26-year-old man, a 22-year-old man and a 30-year-old woman were arrested for public peace violations.  "Those were all for peaceful protesters who blocked the street after officers repeatedly asked them not to do so.," police said in a statement.

This is a developing story.  Check back for details.
