Ferguson, Mo., protesters brought their message to a fancy mall in St. Louis as part of their "Moral Monday" demonstrations yesterday.

Protesters went up and down the escalators at the Plaza Frontenac, which includes high-end stores such as Saks Fifth Avenue and Neiman Marcus, noted Fox 2 Now (videos below).

The protesters called for justice for unarmed teen Michael Brown who was shot and killed by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson in August.

The protesters held signs and shouted slogans such as, "We have nothing to lose but our chains" for about 20 minutes.

The "Moral Monday" protests included demonstrations at the St. Louis Rams game and outside the Ferguson police station, which included hundreds of people who stood out in the rain, reported the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Civil rights activist Cornel West was among the 49 protesters arrested outside the police station, noted CNN.

The protesters shouted “Shut it down” and “Fight back.”
