Rashida Tlaib and Hamas-Sympathizing Protesters Take Over Capitol Hill

The day after authorities on Capitol Hill warned lawmakers and their aides about a “potential for demonstration activity on U.S. Capitol Grounds” and “civil disturbance on Wednesday” while promising “a heightened security posture and an increased police presence,” Rashida Tlaib and a group of apparent Hamas sympathizers took over the rotunda of the Cannon House Office Building to demand a “ceasefire now.”


However, according to the United States Capitol Police, demonstrations of any size are prohibited inside congressional buildings — a guideline USCP noted in their initial response to the protest on X.

But the group leading the demonstration, “Jewish Voice for Peace” launched its “sit-in” anyway and stated they wouldn’t leave “until Congress calls for a ceasefire in Gaza.” The group, according to their bio on X, says it is “organizing toward Palestinian liberation.”

The demonstration came as Democrats in Congress including Reps. Cori Bush, Rashida Tlaib, Summer Lee, Jamaal Bowman, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and Ayanna Pressley press forward with their demands for a ceasefire to stop Israel’s counterterrorism operations.

After Capitol Police asked the demonstrators to leave, some refused, and Capitol Police officers began arresting those who did not comply with orders to break up their sit-in. According to USCP, three individuals were arrested and charged with assaulting their officers.

As the demonstration was broken up, authorities announced that “Due to First Amendment activities on Capitol Grounds, all pedestrian entry points to the House Office Buildings [were] restricted to Members and Staff ONLY.”

Outside the House office buildings, a speaker in another group of “ceasefire now” demonstrators lamented the fact that “some people are afraid of our movement” which, again, is advocating for Hamas terrorist interests by calling for a ceasefire to restrict Israel’s ability to take out the Iran-backed terrorists who continue to launch rockets at Israeli civilians.

In addition to the protests and demonstrations, some activists apparently defaced the exterior of buildings on Capitol Hill with calls to “Free Palestine.”

In a show of solidarity with Israel, Rep. Brandon Williams showed up to the Cannon Rotunda demonstration with an Israeli flag:

Other members, such as Rep. Mike Collins, sounded off on the situation and quipped that he was ready to join the rally with a sign of his own:
