NEW YORK (CNN)– The mayor of New York asked protesters to abstain from demonstrating until after the funerals of slain officers, Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu. Nevertheless, protesters march down Fifth Ave. on Tuesday evening.

According to CNN, some chanted “Hey-hey, ho-ho. These racist cops have got to go”; others carried signs saying “Jail killer cops” and “Stop the war on Black America.”

In previous demonstrations, protesters marched against traffic and blocked busy intersections. Although they ignored Mayor Bill de Blasio’s requests, the marchers stayed on the sidewalks.

At 8 p.m. Ct, buildings and landmarks on the New York skyline -including the Empire State and Chrysler buildings, One World Trade Center, and 30 Rockefeller Plaza- will dim their lights for five minutes in honor of slain officers, according to CNN.
