VIDEO: Pro-Hamas Activists shut down BlackRock HQ in NYC, a major investor in Israeli apartheid investing $33BN in Israel

Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it that Hamas Activists shut down BlackRock HQ in NYC, a major investor in Israeli apartheid investing $33Bb in Israel.

A group of pro-Palestine activists staged a protest at the global investment management corporation BlackRock’s headquarters in Manhattan on Thursday.

Carrying banners reading “Shut down genocide profiteers, free Palestine,” numerous protesters entered the lobby of BlackRock’s offices chanting slogans. Since the onset of violence between Israel and Palestine in July 2023, pro-Palestinian protests have erupted in cities around the world, including Washington, D.C., Ohio, Utah, California, Sydney, Melbourne, London, New York, Paris, and Berlin.

Tens of thousands have joined the demonstrations, which have been organized by diverse groups like Muslim and Arab American organizations, student groups, labor unions, antiwar activists, and environmentalists.

Protesters have called for an immediate end to Israeli airstrikes in Gaza and a ceasefire between the two sides. Carrying Palestinian flags and signs, as well as mock child bodies to symbolize Gazan casualties, the protests have been overwhelmingly peaceful.

"BlackRock invest a staggering ~$9 trillion dollars. It is the world’s largest investor in coal, gas and oil. Everyday they pour more money into fossil fuels. It’s time for them to stop torching our future," the group wrote in another tweet, which included a link to a website with alleged mishaps by the company.

Eleven of those who protested were arrested, according to a press release from NYCC.

The demonstrators, according to the group, were arrested "after storming the barricades and pouring fake oil at BlackRock’s HQ."

"Along with 75 other activists with pitchforks, they shut down the HQ entrance to demand that the company - the world’s largest investor in fossil fuels - end new investments in coal, oil and gas, in line with the basic scientific requirements of avoiding global climate catastrophe," the group stated.
