Nearly 100 people rallied against the closure of F Street today, marching down the Las Vegas Strip, passing out flyers and chanting, "No justice, no peace, reopen F Street!"

They began the march on Flamingo Road and Las Vegas Boulevard and ended the march on Convention Center Drive at the Royal Resort.

F Street has been permanently closed due to the I-15 north widening project.

The protesters call the closure biased and have filed a federal civil rights lawsuit seeking the immediate reopening of the street.
