ST. LOUIS, MO (KPLR)- On one of the busiest travel days of the year,  Ferguson demonstrators marched inside Lambert St. Louis International Airport Friday afternoon.  They stage a so-called “die-in”, lying down on the floor of the airport’s concourse to spread their message:  African American lives must be protected and racial profiling by police must end.

The protests began around 5:00pm and the demonstrators left the airport peacefully around 5:30pm. They arrived and left using Metrolink.
