(CNN) – Community leaders in Ferguson, Missouri, have called for residents to stay indoors tonight, after violent clashes erupted Monday between protesters and heavily-armed police.
But community organizers say they will march, and calling on officials to give them space.
Instead of marching in the tight space on West Florisant Avenue, site of last night's clashes, "I'm going to re-ask the state troopers and the governor himself for permission ... to get a five-mile march route to blow off steam, and to get people a longer range to walk, and get their First Amendment rights going," said Malik Shabazz, president and founder of Black Lawyers for Justice.
The request from city officials that there be no marching or protesting after dark "cannot happen," says local pastor Mike Robinson.
"They have the right to the peacefully assemble and to protest. Their voices must be heard, and we must give them that opportunity," said Robinson, an assistant pastor at Ferguson's Peace of Mind Church.
