ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – A group of masked protester are hoping to raise awareness to all forms of oppression by taking to the streets in Albuquerque.

It’s part of the annual “Million Mask March” held in cities around the world, with anonymous participants protesting what they see as injustice in government and other institutions.

Saturday, the group made their way through downtown Albuquerque staging a “die-in” at 2nd and Lead to send a message to the Albuquerque Police Department.

“Everybody laid on the ground, we did chalk outlines just to bring awareness to various aspects of the killings and brutality in our city,” said one protester.

Protesters left chalk messages on APD’s headquarters downtown, which crews later cleaned up.
