“Apartheid Resistance Is Not Terrorism”: Protesters Stand in Solidarity with Palestinians

HeadlineOct 09, 2023

Solidarity protests with Gaza took place around the world over the weekend, including here in New York City’s Times Square.

Eugene Puryear: “The whole reason I’m yelling is because the powers that be in New York City and New York state don’t want this rally to happen. The mayor, Eric Adams, perhaps the police chief, we have seen that the governor has denounced this rally. But they don’t want us to have any amplified sound because they don’t want us to be heard by the people of New York, because they don’t want people to know that Palestinians are right to stand up against occupation. Apartheid resistance is not terrorism.”
