How To Watch Baltimore Protests Live As News Stations Broadcast Streaming Coverage
Baltimore is in a state of emergency, and the National Guard has been deployed as demonstrators continued to take to the streets Tuesday. Protestors are marching to honor the memory of Freddie Gray and condemn police violence. As demonstrators continue to make their way through the streets of Baltimore, local news stations will again maintain important live coverage of the protests that continue to unfold. But how can you watch the Baltimore protests and coverage of the news if you're not in Maryland?
NBC affiliate WBAL 11 will have an ongoing live stream featuring a look at the protests themselves as well as reporters on the ground interviewing demonstrators. Likewise, CBS affiliate WJZ 13 will continue its live coverage of the protests as well as statements and press conferences from city officials. The Baltimore Police Department scanner as well as EMS and BFD are also available to listen in on via Broadcastify. ABC affiliate WMAR appears to have limited coverage, though they will be broadcasting live during their evening and nightly newscast times at 5 p.m. and 11 p.m., respectively.
As of this writing, there are currently no live streams available on Ustream of the protests, though users have posted videos of live demonstrations as early as 51 minutes ago. Bustle's list of prominent journalists to follow during the Baltimore protests provides a look at what's unfolding through the eyes of four Baltimore Sun reporters, as well as national media. Be sure to also check Vine and Periscope and search for Baltimore for the most up-to-date coverage from inside the crowds.
The aftermath of Monday's demonstrations sprang residents into action as Baltimore citizens of all ages came together to help clean up the more violent aftermath of the protests. A majority of protests were nonviolent, and efforts to promote peace have brought together some of the most notorious gangs in Baltimore. The city is currently under a curfew for the rest of the week that prohibits activity from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. Residents will only be allowed to break curfew if they are experiencing a medical emergency or are traveling to work or home from work.
