Hundreds of anti-racism protesters briefly stalled traffic on the George Washington Bridge in New York on September 12, before six demonstrators were arrested during clashes with the New York Police Department, an NYPD spokesperson told local media.
Video filmed by Joshua Potash shows protesters gathering on the George Washington Bridge and spreading across lanes going both directions while NYPD vehicles arrive on one side of the bridge.
Further video shows protesters and police in a standoff before protesters leave the bridge. Police are then seen approaching the crowds of protesters. Later the video shows protesters being detained, some outside of the 34th Precinct in New York’s Washington Heights neighborhood. Credit: Joshua Potash via Storyful
