BLM protesters Manhattan

Eight people were arrested Friday night when a group of 150 BLM protesters Manhattan smashed windows and scratched shop windows and benches in Lower Manhattan, law enforcement sources said.

At least two Starbucks, five banks and a Duane Reade had their windows broken, causing damages estimated at $ 100,000.
Police recovered two stun guns, smoke grenades, and tools for robbery and graffiti.

The protest was announced on Twitter by groups calling themselves the “New Black Panther Party of Africa” ​​and the “Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement.”

One of the arrested protesters was from Portland, Oregon, and another was from Iowa, sources said.

All were accused of riots; some have also been charged with possession of weapons and theft tools.

The protest began at 6:00 p.m. in Foley Square; Protesters lit bonfires in trash cans and scrawled graffiti, including the word “Abolition,” as they headed north.

“Every town, every town, razed the district to the ground,” the group was recorded singing at one point.

Three of the damaged benches were located on Seventh Avenue between 14th and 20th streets, law enforcement sources said.

“Your neighbors’ windows are broken: why don’t you call for an investigation now?” the source asked the Post ironically.

Security footage obtained by NBC4 shows a protester wearing a balaclava using a tool to smash through a shop window while others held umbrellas to protect the vandal from sight.

“We ask everyone who stood up during the #GeorgeFloyd riot and all supporters to come out and say #DropTheCharges to everyone who fought for our liberation!” wrote one of the groups that organized the event, RAM NYC, while promoting the protest on Twitter late last month.
