NEW YORK (PIX11) — A Palestinian flag that read “Boycott, Divest, Sanction” was hung from the Manhattan Bridge Wednesday evening.
The flag was seen by pro-Palestine supporters on the neighboring Brooklyn Bridge, who were participating in “March for Palestine!”
Hosted by NYC Solidarity with Palestine, the march worked “to affirm our support for the people of Palestine,” as media attention has been turning away from the crisis overseas.
The flag has been taken down. The NYPD, on alert after two white flags were mysteriously placed atop the Brooklyn Bridge in July, is investigating the incident.
