Protestors Halt Parade

The annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade was briefly put on hold when a group of 30 pro-Palestinian protestors broke through the barricades and glued themselves to the pavement of the parade route in New York City. Initially demonstrating on Sixth Avenue, the protestors moved to 49th Street after breaching the barricades.

Chants and Flags

Multiple videos posted online captured the protestors chanting slogans such as "no more nickels, not another dime, no more money for Israel's crimes" and "Free free Palestine." They were seen holding up Palestinian flags and papers with messages like "genocide then, genocide now." Some protestors were also heard shouting "Viva, viva Palestina."

According to officials, all of the protestors were taken into custody. Their actions caused a temporary delay in the parade, but it eventually continued.

Presidential Support

President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden called in to express gratitude during the parade, urging Americans to come together. President Biden acknowledged the ongoing conflict in the Middle East and thanked first responders and troops, some of whom are stationed abroad.
