NEW YORK - Hundreds of pro-Palestinian demonstrators gathered across New York City Friday night.
"The past month has marked a new chapter of struggle in the battle for Palestinian freedom in New York City," an Instagram post promoting the march read.
Pictures show demonstrators carrying signs calling for a ceasefire in Gaza. Others could be seen praying as scores of people marched.
NYPD officers stood guard outside The New York Times' headquarters as people gathered outside.
People even gathered outside the New York Public Library.
Pro-Palestinian activists organized the rally in Union Square to "shut it down."
It was unclear if demonstrators from the Union Square march had joined the Midtown demonstration.
