Far-left Antifa radicals vandalized businesses and blocked traffic with barricades during a two-hour march down Lake Street in Minneapolis Friday night.

The march was infiltrated by independent photojournalist Rebecca Brannon, who said that Antifa-affiliated accounts had been posting about the “direct action” all week.

Brannon reports that a helicopter was circling overhead the entire time, but no police ever showed up during the two-hour occupation.

Several businesses were vandalized and traffic was blocked in both directions, Brannon reports.

The mass vandalism event was organized in response to the death of Amir Locke, a 22-year-old who was shot and killed during a SWAT team raid in Minneapolis last week.

At some points, the demonstrators marched through residential streets and created “barricades wherever they could,” according to Brannon.

The vandals also threw rocks at and spray-painted the Minneapolis Police Department’s Fifth Precinct.

Crime Watch Minneapolis obtained pictures of some of the vandalism. Some of the graffiti included clear threats to burn down the city again.
