More than 1,500 protesters against police violence shut down part of the Mall of America in Minnesota on Saturday, resulting in about 25 arrests during the final weekend before Christmas as shoppers scrambled to buy gifts at one of the nation’s largest shopping centers, officials said.

Demonstrators at the Mall of America shouted “Hands up, don’t shoot!”, referring to the fatal police shooting of Michael Brown in Missouri, and “Black people can’t breathe, while we’re on our shopping sprees,” referring to the chokehold death of Eric Garner in New York.

Protesters held their hands in the air while mall officials displayed an electronic billboard message warning demonstrators they risked arrest, according to an image posted on the Twitter account of Black Lives Matter Minneapolis.
