Protesters take a knee at Trump Hotel and Trump Tower ahead of NYC curfew

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

A mass of anti-police brutality protesters gathered in front of Trump International Hotel ahead of Tuesday’s 8 p.m. curfew, as demonstrations continued to rage across the city for a sixth day.

Thousands of people took a knee or sat across from the luxury hotel near Columbus Circle around 7:15 p.m. as they protested the death of George Floyd and other black people killed by the police.


They beckoned at a line of officers standing guard in front of the skyscraper, with one man belting into a bullhorn: “Look at the men in the white shirts. They are the ones holding the power.”

Some protesters were spotted climbing atop of an NYPD squad car parked amid the crowd, while others were seated above a kiosk near Central Park.

The group expressed no intention of scattering ahead of curfew, with chants of “Eight, we aren’t going anywhere” and “wait till eight,” ringing out.


“We are not moving after eight because if we move we will get separated,” one woman said into the loudspeaker. “We are staying right here.”
