VIDEO: "Throw these people out" - Marjorie Taylor Greene calls for arrest of pro-Gaza protesters who have occupied Cannon House office building on Capitol Hill, Rotunda

"Throw these people out" - Marjorie Taylor Greene call for arrest of pro-Gaza protesters who have occupied Cannon House office building on Capitol Hill, Rotunda.

A pro-Palestinian rally is underway on Capitol Hill as demonstrators are occupying the Cannon Rotunda and large crowds are growing around the Capitol complex.

The Cannon House Office Building holds several House Committee and congressional offices. 

U.S. Capitol Police say that demonstrations are not allowed inside Congressional buildings and are working to clear the crowd. Police have already detained some individuals as chants of "ceasefire now" are echoing around the building. 

USCP also said more protesters are now walking in the roadway around the House side of the Capitol Complex and they have begun temporary rolling road closures for safety.

McCarthy was an early architect of the GOP majority that became his downfall

Arrests made at demonstration over Israel-Hamas war

As the House recessed after another failed speaker vote, a large group of demonstrators from Jewish advocacy groups gathered at one of the Capitol office buildings to call for a ceasefire in the ongoing war between Israel and Hamas.

The dozens of demonstrators chanted, “Not in our name!” in reference to Israel’s bombardment of Gaza in response to a recent attack by Hamas. Some were arrested for illegally demonstrating in a Capitol office building.

Without a speaker, many members of the House have been frustrated by the chamber's inability to pass legislation, particularly in response to the war.

Police lined up detained protesters outside the Cannon Office Building, where they were being shuttled to a temporary holding area in the Capitol complex. None of the protesters was in the Capitol building itself.

Democrats want GOP to come to them for a way forward

Democrats say they are waiting for Republicans to reach out for their support to elect a House speaker after two weeks without one.

Rep. Katherine Clark of Massachusetts, the No. 2 House Democrat, says, “The ball’s in their court. This is their civil war."

Democrats met briefly Wednesday for a closed-door strategy session after Ohio Republican Rep. Jim Jordan lost the speaker's vote for a second day in a row.
