War in Israel: Massive Grand Central Station rush hour protest leads to arrests as protesters seek Middle East ceasefire following terrorist attacks

Police cuffed a swarm of protesters Friday night at Grand Central Station after they took part in a rush hour rally demanding a Middle East ceasefire three weeks after the terrorist group Hamas’ bloody assault on Israel.

Organized by Jewish Voices for Peace, hundreds of protesters — including an array of local elected officials — looked to garner attention in support of a ceasefire in Gaza by holding a “sit-in” in the iconic Grand Central’s Grand Concourse. The demonstration turned heads as the participants surrounded the landmark golden clock in the heart of the transit hub.
