MIAMI (CBSMiami) — For a third day, protesters moved through the streets of South Florida.

They are protesting the controversial deaths of African Americans at the hands of police officers.

Sunday, protesters moved along through the Wynwood area and in the vicinity of NW 25th and 35th Streets and North Miami Avenue.

Traffic in the area of the protest came to a near standstill at times.

Police activity in Miami-Dade on the I-95 south ramp to Exit 4 I-195 East forced the off-ramp to be closed for a short time.

Also, I-195 at the Julia Tuttle Causeway was closed in both directions Sunday afternoon, but reopened just before 6 p.m.

FHP worked to move the protesters away from the major highways and prevent accidents.

The recent decisions not to press charges against police officers involved in black deaths in New York City and Ferguson have led to protests across the country.

Friday, civil disobedience shut down I-195 and moved through the streets of Miami.
