In New York, tensions were high earlier tonight with protesters on the Manhattan Bridge and police on both sides -- but it appears police are now allowing protesters to walk away and leave the area.
Protesters holding signs and holding their arms up slowly walk off, back to the Brooklyn side, as police stand to the side.
"We haven't seen them make arrests or taking folks into custody, allowing those on the bridge to make their way off the bridge," said CNN Correspondent Jason Carroll at the scene.
"So far this falls in line with a lot of the tactics we have seen, not just tonight but last night as well, with the police taking a step back -- allowing some of the demonstrators to have their voice," said Carroll.
What happened: Earlier today, some protesters splintered from a larger group demonstrating in Brooklyn.
They tried to cross the Manhattan Bridge into Manhattan, but were stopped by police. They stayed stuck on the bridge, with some fearful of arrests, before turning around and peacefully walking off.
"Police are standing by -- the tactic is take a backseat approach at this point and allow them to continue marching," said Carroll.
