Police Use Force Against Protesters at NYC Queer Liberation March | NowThis

Police in New York City used pepper spray on peaceful protesters marching for Black lives over Pride weekend.

In US news and current events today, protesters peacefully marched as part of the Queer Liberation March for Black Lives & Against Police Brutality in NYC on June 28.

They were met with a violent response by some NYPD members. The march began in lower Manhattan, went around the Stonewall Inn, and ended in a rally at Washington Square Park. In one altercation, a police officer charged at protesters, yelling, ‘Get off the street.’ The NYPD said it arrested at least 3 people at the march but it was unable to give a full count. Protesters intervened as police were arresting 2 people for graffiti, and the police responded using pepper spray, according to witnesses who spoke to Gothamist. The march was held on the 51st anniversary of the 1969 Stonewall uprising.
