Protesters Stage Sit-In at New York Times Headquarters to Call for a Cease-Fire in Gaza

From an AP story by Jake Offenhartz headlined “Protesters stage sit-in at New York Times headquarters to call for a cease-fire in Gaza”:

Pro-Palestinian demonstrators occupied the lobby of The New York Times on Thursday, demanding an immediate ceasefire in Gaza while accusing the media of showing a bias toward Israel in its coverage of the Israel-Hamas war.

The latest in a series of near-nightly demonstrations since the start of the war saw thousands march through Midtown Manhattan to protest Israel’s attacks on Gaza. At around 5 p.m., a small group of demonstrators led by media workers calling themselves “Writers Bloc” entered the atrium of the Times building carrying a banner calling for a cease-fire.
