Currently, we have breaking news from Lower Manhattan where a large group of Pro Palestinian supporters is marching. Images from newscopter 7 show the crowd advancing from City Hall Park through Bowery and onto the outbound side of the Manhattan Bridge.
This rally, known as flood NYC day for Gaza, aims to protest elected officials who are seen as complicit in the ongoing genocide in Palestine. The police are providing an escort for the group, resulting in the complete shutdown of traffic.
Another rally is scheduled at Union Square for 6:00, but for now, the focus is on the group’s movement up and over the Manhattan Bridge..
