Thousands march across Brooklyn Bridge protesting vax mandate


Thousands of municipal employees and allies marched across the Brooklyn Bridge Monday in protest of the city’s impending vaccination mandate, scheduled to take effect on Friday.

Marchers gathered at MetroTech Plaza in Downtown Brooklyn the morning of Oct. 25 for a rally, where they chanted their intentions to “hold the line” and not get vaccinated against the coronavirus even if that means losing their jobs.

“Today is a day in which we, the workers of this great city, stand up to unreasonable mandates,” a worker named Gary told the crowd at MetroTech. “We, the workers, are the foundation on which this city stands, and without that foundation, will crumble.”
