Councilman Greenfield Denounces Anti-Semitic Outburst in NYC Council Chamber
Last Thursday, Pro-Palestinian activists disrupted a New York City Council meeting to protest Council members’ planned trip to Israel next month. They unfurled a Palestinian flag and began yelling “Palestinian lives matter,” “Don’t support genocide.”
The disruption began as they were concluding a vote on a resolution commemorating the anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz concentration camp.
In this powerful video, Councilman David Greenfield delivers an impassioned speech after the protesters were removed. Worth sharing.
