57 Protesters Arrested Outside Schumer’s Home

A total of 57 people were arrested – including two New York State Assembly Members Zohran Mamdani and Marcela Mitaynes – outside New York Sen. Chuck Schumer’s Brooklyn home.

Hundreds of people gathered at the Grand Army Plaza for the rally, organized by Jewish Voice for Peace — a self-described anti-Zionist activist group — before marching a few blocks to the senator’s Park Slope residence and blocking the street.

“New York Jews blocking @SenSchumer’s home demanding a ceasefire NOW,” Jewish Voice for Peace Action wrote on X.

Protesters held a large banner that read, “Jews say stop genocide against Palestinians” in front of Schumer’s building’s door with several police officers standing nearby.

Police were seen escorting dozens of handcuffed detainees onto MTA buses and driving away.

According to Jewish Voice for Peace, those arrested included “rabbis, politicians, scholars, and descendants of holocaust survivors — ages 20 to 80,” the organization tweeted.

Assembly members Zohran Kwame Mamdani (D-Queens) and Marcela Mitaynes (D-Brooklyn) were among those arrested at the rally, sources said.

They will be issued summonses for blocking vehicular traffic, the sources said.

Schumer, the highest elected Jewish official in the US, is departing for Israel this weekend, where he will lead fellow senators to show support for the country’s government, his office announced earlier on Friday.

He and the delegation will meet with Israel’s new emergency government, including Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, where they will discuss what resources the US can provide in its fight against Hamas, a spokesperson for the senator told The Post.

Earlier Friday In Manhattan, pro-Palestinian demonstrators marched from Baruch College in Midtown through Times Square to United Nations Headquarters on East 45th Street, waving flags and holding signs demanding an end to the war.

In March, more than 200 protesters demanding an end for all US military funding to Israel were arrested outside of Schumer’s home.

Jewish Voice for Peace, which also organized that protest, said at the time it was protesting Schumer’s support for mob violence by Israeli settlers against Palestinians.
