Protest held in Philadelphia

PHILADELPHIA -- A protest called a "die-in" was held outside Lincoln Financial Field on Sunday following the Eagles' game against the Seattle Seahawks.

A Philadelphia clergy group called POWER (Philadelphia Organized to Witness Empower & Rebuild) organized the protest, which was part of those taking place across the country following the grand jury decisions in the Michael Brown and Eric Garner cases.

POWER clergy leaders and members of their congregations laid down in the middle of the intersection at Broad Street and Pattison Avenue outside Lincoln Financial Field after the Eagles' loss to the Seahawks.

About 200 protesters stayed in the street for a total of 4 minutes, 30 seconds to represent the 4 hours, 30 minutes that Brown laid lifeless in the streets of Ferguson, Missouri.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reported that a handful of football fans exiting the stadium cursed at the demonstrators.
