The annual joyful Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in Manhattan was paused when a group of about 30 anti-Israel protestors ran into the parade route and some of them glued themselves to the street.
The protestors lay down and glued their hands to the street. The floats and performers had to be rerouted while the disruption was dealt with.
Some of the protestors wore white clothes with red marks to symbolize the people they claimed have been killed in Gaza in the war between Israel and the Hamas terrorist organization. They also held a banner that read 'Genocide then, genocide now,' but not referring to Hamas' stated genocidal goals.
One protestor yelled: “Free Palestine! From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free,” a genocidal chant calling for the complete destruction of the State of Israel and its Jewish inhabitants.
A number of protestors were arrested for disturbing the peace. Local media reported that parade participants and spectators were upset with the disruption.
