On Monday, protesters from an offshoot of Black Lives Matter shut down traffic for about 30 minutes on the westbound Bay Bridge. Twenty-five people were arrested after they chained themselves to vehicles that blockaded the bridge. The action was organized by Black.Seed, which describes itself as a “Black, queer liberation collective.” In a statement, the group said it shut down the bridge in solidarity with Martin Luther King Jr. and to take a stand against racism.
