Scores of pro-Palestinian protesters on Sunday blocked both sides of the Manhattan Bridge, New York, United States, for a period of fours hours.
It was gathered that the demonstrators swarmed the bridge around 1:45 p.m. (18:45 GMT) on one of the year’s busiest travel days.
The protesters known as anti-Zionist movement Jewish Voice for Peace, over 1,000 protestors called for a permanent cease-fire.
In a video released on X, the activists sat in the traffic at the Manhattan-side approach to the bridge and hung a massive banner that said “Let Gaza Live” on the iconic granite arch.
The police said, the bridge reopened to traffic at 5:40 p.m. It was unclear whether any arrests had been made.
Protesters disrupted the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in Midtown Manhattan on Thursday, forcing some of the parade’s 26 floats, 32 balloons, and 8,000 participants to avoid them while police sought to clear their path.
