Pasco, WA- Another day of protests continued Saturday evening in Pasco over the officer-involved shooting of Antonio Zambrano more than a week ago.  

It was the second weekend of protests on the small corner at 10th and Lewis Street, but demonstrators hoped to have a big presence including a mother who's son was killed by police.

"I want to make a stop to all police brutality.  We are here to support everybody.  We just want justice," said Maria Giron.

People came Saturday to demand justice for Zambrano, killed in Pasco, and others who have died from officer-involved shootings.

"We want more people to come to the table and work with us to come together with these organizations to get as much input at possible," said Jeremy Peterson, community organizer.

The crowd listened as speakers from various movements demanded justice and a stop to officer-involved deaths.

Leader of the October 22nd Coalition to Stop Police brutality, Emma Kaplan said their demands need to be met.  she was at last week's protest when police told demonstrators to move to the sidewalks.

"It's now the 21st...10 days.  Still no justice.  Still no justice for Antonio. We're here to say all lives matter," said Kaplan.

Protestors held signs and chanted.  Some hoped for a peaceful protest.

"I just hope that everybody keeps it calm and it doesn't get blown out of hand by some of the outside people that are here," Mike Wingfield, friend of the Brad Jensen family.

The protestors marched from the 10th and Lewis to city hall and some even walked over the Cable Bridge.

The protestors said they just wanted their voices heard.
