FERGUSON, MO (KTVI)-- Protesters who have been camping out in Ferguson to protest the shooting of Michael Brown have been moved out by police.

Ferguson police moved in and told about 12 protesters to pack up their belongings.

Witnesses said about eight tents were removed along with backpacks and personal belongings.

The protesters are members of the group called "Lost Voices."

They've been camping out behind an old Ponderosa Restaurant for about a week after they were asked to leave their previous location outside Red's Barbecue Restaurant on West Florissant.

It's unclear if the owner of the old Pondersoa property or nearby residents asked police to move in Friday and clear them out.

Two of the protestors were arrested.
