SCRIPT

Professor and activist Norman Finkelstein was arrested alongside several other protesters in New York City during a pro-Palestine demonstration, Tuesday.

The protest was organised by the political science professor who called for the end of the Israeli occupation in Gaza in front of the Israeli Mission to the UN.

A total of 35 demonstrators laid down in a crosswalk to block 2nd Avenue at 23rd Street, next to the building hosting the Israeli Mission to the UN. Around a hundred people surrounded them and chanted for the end of the occupation and the slaughter in Gaza.

Protesters were told to get off the street by the NYPD officers before getting arrested for refusing to do so, with 26 confirmed, meanwhile traffic was blocked for twenty minutes.
