FERGUSON, MO (KTVI)-The second of two Ferguson-related marches is underway. The marches are being billed as national events, organized by the National Leadership Coalition for Justice. Saturday's march is taking place in Ferguson. Protestors will march from Forest Wood Park to the Ferguson Police Department.

Things got off to a heated start at the first march in Clayton, MO, Friday when a  few demonstrators got testy with news crew cameras and reporters, but things went smoothly for the most part. The march began at Shaw Park with participants carrying signs that read "KKK Killers" and the "New Black Panther Party" among others. The 100 plus protestors made their way through the streets of Clayton, stopping in front of the St. Louis County Justice Department.

The group says they are standing up against injustice and they're demanding change locally and nationally.

Protestor Apostle Ermon Trotter, Jr. says,  "We can't blame the police or society for all of our problems. We have to stand up as a community and make changes  in our own community."
