The group gathered on the steps of the capitol around 7 p.m. Sunday and began crafting anti-Nazi signs and shouting chants. The march briefly shut down River Road as protestors made their way to the levee around 7:20 in the afternoon.
Protest organizers say they did not have a permit, however officers still assisted them as they crossed the roadway.
