Over 20 people were arrested Wednesday night at a protest in Midtown.

The large group of protesters marched through Midtown on Wednesday evening, demanding to protect the results of the election.

They marched down Fifth Avenue and gathered in Washington Square Park, calling for all votes to be counted.

The protest was peaceful, but police later reported incidents of people starting fires and throwing garbage and eggs.

In a tweet, the NYPD said, “We appreciate and value the importance of freedom of speech. Our top priority is and always will be safety. We have arrested more than 20 individuals who attempted to hijack a peaceful protest by lighting fires, throwing garbage and eggs in Manhattan.”

  1. Did AOC or Kamala write this article? How can starting fires, throwing eggs and garbage lead you to write the protest was peaceful? Im not sure what Yeshiva , the Yeshiva News is a product of, but our Yeshivas didnt allow throwing eggs or garbage.

  2. Police are certainly having a good time enjoying themselves here,
    There are other ways to hold protestors back if they don’t comply with police orders,
    any USA police department have a lot to learn from any European country law enforcers,
    CHAYOS & BEHIMOIS ROTZCHIN B’YITZURAS ODOM,
    No difference between the Israeli police thugs

  3. The headline says something the article does not. The police commissioner said the protest was peaceful, and after the protest ended, some people started looting, setting fires and throwing eggs.
