More than 100 demonstrators lapped Manhattan's Columbus Circle off Central Park, then held a die-in at a nearby Apple store, NPR's Will Huntsbury reports.

Protests also continued across the country, with demonstrators blocking a major causeway in Miami, marching from Yale Law School in Connecticut to a nearby courthouse, and blocking downtown streets in Providence, R.I.
