Dozens of people protesting the deaths of unarmed black men at the hands of police in Los Angeles, New York and Ferguson, staged a rally in front Los Angeles police headquarters Friday before embarking on a march down Broadway into South Los Angeles.

The march and rally calling for justice for Ezell Ford, who died after being shot by officers with whom he allegedly scuffled in South Los Angeles Aug. 11, Eric Garner, who died after police in New York put him in a choke hold and Michael Brown, who was fatally shot by a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri, was organized by members of Stop Mass Incarceration Network.

The protesters — who gathered in front of the LAPD administration building at 100 W. First Street downtown — planned to march to the intersection of 65th Street and Broadway, the site of Ford’s fatal encounter with police and where another rally was planned this evening.
