In response to the killing of Israel "Reefa" Hernandez by Miami police and the surrounding events of Michael Brown and Eric Garner's deaths, an organized protest took to the streets of Miami to shut down I-195 during Miami Art Basel weekend. Three feather banners were sent to be incorporated in the protest as deemed effective by the organizers and protesters on site. Traffic to and from Art Basel Miami Beach was shut down for nearly three hours thanks to local organizers and protesters.
