MILWAUKEE — Hundreds of protesters have rallied in downtown Milwaukee during the Republican presidential debate.
The rally Tuesday night brought together activists for a variety of causes — immigrant rights, civil rights, a living wage and more.
Protesters gathered at Milwaukee's City Hall to hear speeches from U.S. Rep. Gwen Moore and others, before marching to nearby Milwaukee Theatre, where GOP candidates were debating.
The rally and march were peaceful. Speakers criticized Republican candidates for being insensitive to their issues.
"Hey, hey, ho, ho, the GOP has got to go," was among the chants.
Nate Hamilton, whose brother Dontre was killed in a confrontation with a Milwaukee police officer, addressed the crowd, saying if political leaders don't care about protesters, then it would be up to protesters to "make them care."
