The Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco reopened on Monday after demonstrators protesting the war in Gaza shut down the busy roadway, California Highway Patrol Officer Andrew Barclay told CNN.

Earlier in the day, protesters also blocked Interstate 880 in Oakland and the roadway remains impacted, Barclay said.

Protests continued on the interstate, aerial and ground video from CNN affiliate KGO showed.

“Arrests have been made, and are continuing to be made,” Barclay said on Monday.

Before the law enforcement response, protesters held signs, including one that read “Stop the world for Gaza.”

The protest was one of many anti-Israel demonstrations that have taken place across the US since Hamas’ October 7 attack and the war in Gaza which followed.

Similar protests were held across the United States and around the world on Monday, after the group A15 Action called for coordinating a "multi-city blockade... in solidarity with Palestine."

Protesters blocked roads in Philadelphia and shut down highway traffic heading into Chicago's O'Hare International Airport, forcing some passengers to make their way by foot to catch their flights, reported the AFP news agency.

In March, hundreds of protesters demanding a ceasefire in Gaza and calling for an end to US military assistance for Israel blocked the international terminal at the San Francisco International Airport.

A month earlier, multiple anti-Israel protesters were arrested after they used cars to halt traffic at the Brooklyn Bridge and two major tunnels during rush hour.

In late December, 26 protesters were arrested during an anti-Israel demonstration that blocked a road to John F. Kennedy International Airport.

A day later, pro-Palestinian Arab protesters shut down the entrance to the World Trade Center in New York City.
