New York police arrest hundreds after Israel-Hamas protest at Grand Central

Hundreds of protesters have been arrested after a “sit-in” on the main concourse of New York’s Grand Central Station, one of the city’s major transport hubs, demanding a ceasefire between Israel and Hamas.

The protesters, wearing black T-shirts reading ‘Ceasefire now’ and ‘Not in our name’, unfurled banners calling for freedom for Palestinians and an end to the bombardment of Gaza.

“No more weapons. No more war. Ceasefire is what we’re fighting for,” they chanted, punching the air.

Banners were hung from the concourse’s sweeping staircase, and across the departures board.

“Mourn the dead, and fight like hell for the living,” read one.
