In a bold display of activism, approximately 500-1100 Pro-Palestine protesters and activists have occupied and effectively shut down the Manhattan Bridge in New York City. The demonstrators, impassioned in their cause, are blocking vehicular traffic, demanding a permanent cessation of all US military aid to Israel.
Chants reverberate across the bridge as protesters voice their call for the US to withdraw from the Middle East and bring an end to the conflict in Gaza. The impassioned gathering has brought vehicular movement to a standstill, with the New York City Police Department advising the public to steer clear of the area.
