(ABCNEWS.GO) — Several dozen protesters -- part of a Black Lives Matter demonstration -- were pushed out of the Mall of America in Bloomington, Minnesota, this afternoon by a wall of officers.
The group said on its Facebook page that the protest -- on what is one of the busiest shopping days of the year and at the nation's largest mall -- aims to bring awareness to last month's deadly police shooting of Jamar Clark, a black man from Minneapolis.
The protest was planned for 2:30 p.m. ET, according to ABC affiliate KSTP-TV in Minneapolis and St. Paul.

But they were met with officers using a loud horn to say the demonstration on mall property was not authorized. The officers then moved forward until everyone exited.
