They assembled outside Broadcasting House in Belfast city centre just after 5pm on Friday evening and blocked part of Ormeau Avenue for a time.
The protestors claim the BBC's reporting of the crisis has been biased and unbalanced.
However the corporation insists its coverage has been impartial and fair.
Police said: "During the protest tonight the Ormeau Avenue was blocked for a time.
"Warnings were issued to the crowd regarding obstruction of the road and they began to disperse a number of minutes later."
