Update: Around 8:30 p.m., protesters cleared the Connector and traffic is flowing. They moved off into the Old Fourth Ward area and the crowd appears to be thinning considerably according to shots from The Channel 2 Action News helicopter, which was over the area.

Protestors have taken to the downtown connector, obstructing northbound lanes of I-75/I-85.

They marched from a rally at the Atlanta Underground, down to the Capitol and on the interstate around Edgewood Avenue.

No arrests have been reported. Police is on the scene, following the protesters and funneling them off the Interstate.
