Anti-Israel Protesters OCCUPY The New York Times Building (VIDEOS)

Activists accused the newspaper of “inciting genocide” against Palestinians

A large crowd of demonstrators swarmed theheadquarters of the New York Times on Thursday to protest the newspaper’s coverage of the Israel-Hamas war. The crowd barged into the building and briefly occupied the lobby.

Hundreds of activists took part in the march, many seen with Palestinian flags and signs carrying anti-Israel slogans.

They also condemned Washington’s staunch support for Israel, with some heard accusing President Joe Biden of “supporting genocide” against Palestinians in Gaza, according to the New York Post.

At one point, demonstrators passed out mock issues of the NYT dubbed “the New York Crimes,” which said the outlet had “blood…on its hands” for “inciting enthusiasm for war.”

It went on to list the names of dozens of journalists killed in the latest bout of violence, with the parody headline “We killed our colleagues.”

“We will continue holding the New York Times to account… for inciting genocide!” protesters were heard chanting. “Not another nickel, not another dime, no more money for the New York Times!”

Sometime near the tail end of the protest an NYPD police cruiser was vandalized, with its back window smashed out and slogans scrawled on the vehicle with spray paint, including the words “Free Gaza.” Police reported no arrests during the action, however.

The latest round of fighting in Gaza erupted last month when Hamas launched a surprise attack on Israel, killing some 1,400 people.

Since then, the IDF has carried out weeks of retaliatory airstrikes and gradually escalated a major ground assault on Gaza, leaving nearly 11,000 Palestinians dead, including around 4,400 children, according to local officials.
