Protest

The Reverend Al Sharpton led a rally at a Clearwater church Sunday to protest Florida’s controversial 'stand your ground' law.

And while the civil rights leader spoke in the sanctuary, demonstrators made their feelings heard outside.

Police in Florida say they've arrested six people who bound themselves with bicycle locks outside a federal office in a protest of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

Sixteen people who were arrested after demonstrating outside a Miramar Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) facility Wednesday have been released from the Broward County Jail in Fort Lauderdale. One other person was transferred to the jail in Pompano Beach and is expected to be released soon.

The 17 protesters were charged with unlawful assembly, a second-degree misdemeanor, and obstructing a roadway, a first-degree misdemeanor charge, after gathering in the intersection of SW 29th St. and 145th Ave. to call on Mayor Wayne Messam to shut down the ICE office. 

South Florida activist groups held a march and blocked traffic Wednesday near the U.S. Immigration Customs and Enforcement field office in Miramar.

The group blocked streets at the intersection of SW 29th Street and 145th Avenue for hours.

Concession and flight catering workers at Miami International Airport protested Tuesday for higher wages. 

Dressed in red t-shirts that read "Fed Up," employees of LSG Sky Chefs said the in-flight food catering company has been underpaying them. They want American Airlines, the largest airline at the airport, to pressure Sky Chefs to raise its employees' wages.
