OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - About 100 people are marching through downtown Oakland streets in a third night of protests spawned by a Missouri grand jury's refusal to indict a white police officer in the shooting of a young black man.

More than 20 police officers on foot and at least 15 law enforcement vehicles are closely following the crowd as it peacefully marched toward a freeway Wednesday night.

The group is being led by two people holding a large banner that reads "People In Ferguson Are Standing Up! It's Right to Rebel!"

On Monday and Tuesday, some demonstrators vandalized businesses and blocked freeways to protest that a grand jury declined to indict Officer Darren Wilson in the Aug. 9 fatal shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri.
