VIDEO: Protesters Holding 130 Ferguson Demonstrations Across USA, Canada

Hours after protests over the grand jury decision in Michael Brown's death rocked Ferguson, Mo., people across the country took to the streets to voice their anger again Tuesday, reports CNN.

In Washington, protesters lay down on a sidewalk outside police headquarters as if dead, according to a tweet by Nikki Burdine, a reporter for CNN affiliate WUSA. Some had handwritten notes on their chests: "Black lives matter." The protest was similar to one Monday night outside the White House.

In Chicago, a few dozen protesters gathered Tuesday morning on a downtown street corner ahead of another protest at City Hall, CNN affiliates WGN reported. About 200 members of the Black Youth Project staged a sit-in outside Mayor Rahm Emanuel's office Tuesday afternoon. They plan to be there for 28 hours.

As of midday, more than 130 protests had either occurred or were planned for Tuesday in 37 U.S. states, the District of Columbia and Canada, according to information compiled by CNN from organizers, media reports, social media and a site set up to help organize protest efforts.
