'Jews Against ICE' Protesters Demonstrate Inside and Outside of Midtown Amazon Store

At least 40 protesters who took part in a “Jews Against ICE” protest at an Amazon Books store on Manhattan’s 34th Street were arrested by police on Sunday, August 11, coinciding with the Jewish fast day of Tisha B’Av.

This footage shows the interior and exterior of the store, where more than demonstrators spoke out against detention centers in the United States, made speeches, sang songs and held banners with slogans including “Never again means never again,” drawing a comparison between the events of the Holocaust and the current immigration situation in the US.

The protest in New York coincided with a number of similar demonstrations across the country on Sunday, but Amazon’s brick-and-mortar Midtown store was chosen as a protest site due to the technology company allegedly hosting database software enabling ICE to document and detain immigrants, according to reports from PIX11 and Haaretz.
