The Reverend Al Sharpton says tens of thousands came to the Lincoln Memorial today as Dr. Martin Luther King Junior did 57 years ago to say they are tired of broken promises.

Protesters are calling for police reform and marking the anniversary of King's 1963 ``I Have a Dream'' speech.

Sharpton told the crowd that enough is enough saying ``If we have to march every day we will get your knee off our neck.''

Sharpton says demonstrators want action, including Senate passage of a bill, named for the late John Lewis, to protect voting rights.
