NYC Protest Against Israeli Bank in Solidarity with Gaza

Photo essay by Jenna Pope

Today, about 200 people marched from the NY Public Library, through the streets of midtown, and ended up at the IDB Bank. IDB is an Israeli Bank that directly funds the occupation of Palestine, 20% owned by the State of Israel. Several activists participated in an act of civil disobedience by throwing fake blood on the windows of IDB, and then staging a sit-in on the sidewalk until they were arrested by police officers.

"We all lose when American workers are underpaid. It’s a myth that small businesses can’t pay a higher minimum wage, as proven already in the states that have raised theirs. When businesses don’t pay a living wage all society pays. We pay through poverty and needless disease, disability and death from inadequate health care. We pay as women struggle to put food on the table. We pay as businesses and communities suffer economic decline." .. (Margot Dorfman, CEO, U.S. Women’s Chamber of Commerce)
