NYPD arrests 'Shut It Down for Palestine' activists blocking Brooklyn Bridge

NYPD officers rushed to stop the agitators from going onto the bridge.


Agitators protesting for a ceasefire in the Irael-Hamas war and in reaction to the recent attacks from Iran on Israel rushed to block traffic on the Brooklyn Bridge in New York on Monday.  

After the waves of drone attacks on Israel from Iran in response to airstrikes on an Iranian Embassy in Damascus, ceasefire agitators took to the streets to block traffic in multiple places throughout the country on Monday including the Brooklyn Bride.  

Footage shot by Frontlines' Julio Rosas recorded the agitators rushing to the bridge to block traffic in the demonstration.  

Leading up to the rush on the bridge, one anti-Israel and anti-America protester shouted, “Death to America! Death to Israel!” as someone held an American flag.  

The agitators had been at the New York Stock Exchange on Monday and one person waved the flag of terrorist organization Hezbollah.  

After the agitators rushed the bridge, police officers were able to stop about half of them from carrying out the activities in blocking traffic.  

Throughout the day, similar demonstrations took place at the Chicago O'Hare airport as well as the Golden Gate Bridge in California.  

The protest is part of a greater call spoken about by The Post Millennial’s Ari Hoffman on his show.  

The effort was part of a “Coordinated Economic Blockade to Free Palestine,” in different cities throughout the world.  

Other locations listed to be hit by the “blockade” according to the A15Action website include: “Mexico City, Mexico; Bogota, Colombia; Medellín, Colombia; Seoul, South Korea; Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam; Taipei, Taiwan; Melbourne, Australia; Johannesburg, SA; Sydney, Australia; Brisbane; Australia; Athens, Greece; Catalonia, Spain; Utrecht, Netherlands; Genoa; Italy; Brussels, Belgium; Vienna, Austria; Belfast, Ireland; Dublin, Ireland; Montreal, Canada; Halifax, Canada; Ottawa, Canada; Tallahassee, FL; Chicago, IL; Detroit, MI; Indianapolis, IN; London, UK; Long Beach, CA; Tampa, FL; Miami, FL; New York City & New Jersey; Oakland, CA; Orange County, CA; Philadelphia, PA, Phoenix, AZ; San Antonio, TX; San Diego, CA; Seattle, WA; St Louis, MO; Minneapolis-St Paul, MN; Adelaide, Australia; Canberra, Australia; Alice Springs, Australia; Houston, TX; Western MA; Portland, OR; Hobart, Australia; Castlemaine, Australia; Geelong, Australia; Darwin, Australia; Cyprus.”
