Thousands of protestors marched across the country on Saturday to demonstrate against police tactics used on black men.

Millions March NYC was a call for justice for Mike Brown, Eric Garner, Akai Gurley and other victims of police brutality. CBS News reports that at least 25,0000 gathered in Washington Square Park and thousands of people rallied outside NYPD headquarters.

#MillionsMarchNYC quickly took over Twitter as pictures and video of the event were shared from protesters, and some celebs also shared what they were seeing.
