Protesters continue to stand their ground near at the 4th Precinct in north Minneapolis. That's despite ongoing calls from city and state leaders for an end to the encampment.

Alfred Babington-Johnson is one of the voices urging a change in tactics for the protesters. He's a long-time civil rights activist and north Minneapolis resident. MPR's Cathy Wurzer spoke with him.
