Yes, that was a small group of men demonstrating against child circumcision at University and Markham today.

They are from a group called Blood Stained Men.

I'd had a warning they were coming from a Little Rock resident who ran into their protest a few days ago in Shreveport.

Demonstrators held signs some even wore bloodstained suits for a dramatic effect.

The group's Facebook page notes their goal is to raise awareness about what they describe as "the horrors of infant circumcision."

The non-profit organization says it is dedicated to educating Americans about the importance of the foreskin.
