Pro-Palestinian demonstrators swarm on Capitol Hill, demand Gaza ceasefire as police arrest protesters:
Pro-Palestinian demonstrators swarmed the Cannon Rotunda on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday, with hundreds of protesters demanding a ceasefire between Israel and Hamas.
Footage from inside the Cannon Office Building showed a large group chanting "Ceasefire Now!" and calling for Congress to demand the fighting stop in Israel. The protesters were spotted wearing black T-shirts reading, "Jews Say Ceasefire Now!"
The group Jewish Voice for Peace said in a post on X, formerly Twitter, that "over 350" demonstrators," including two dozen rabbis, were inside the large rotunda while thousands of others protested outside.
U.S. Capitol Police (USCP) said demonstrations are not allowed inside congressional buildings and worked to clear the crowd. In an X post, USCP warned the protesters to stop demonstrating and "when they did not comply we began arresting them."
USCP told Fox News that approximately 300 demonstrators were arrested in the protest on Capitol Hill, including at least three who were charged with assault on a police officer during the demonstrations.
USCP also confirmed to Fox News that demonstrators inside the Cannon Rotunda will be charged with illegally protesting inside a House office building.
At 6 p.m., authorities said that the rotunda is clear of illegal protesters and that USCP is processing the arrests. --->READ MORE HERE
Marjorie Taylor Greene calls Israel-Gaza ceasefire protest an 'insurrection':
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) called the hundreds of Capitol Hill protesters occupying part of a House office building on Wednesday "pro-Hamas" and "insurrectionists."
The protesters were dressed in black T-shirts with the words "Jews say cease fire now" while pushing for a ceasefire in Gaza as they occupied the floor in the rotunda of the Cannon House Office Building.
"There’s an insurrection happening now on Capitol Hill," Greene said as she panned with her phone across a crowd of protesters filling the building.
A member of Greene's staff captured a photo of an unidentified person at the protests having a text exchange with "Global Intifada."
"MORE PHOTOS OF THE INSURRECTIONISTS PHONES!! Global Intifada and Jewish Voice for Peace are the organizing groups that antisemite and Pro-Hamas Rashida Tlaib brought in today," she said on X, the platform formerly known as Twitter, while showing photos of the texts.
Rep. Mary Miller (R-IL) joined Greene in writing a similar post on social media: "INSURRECTIONISTS are storming the Capitol in support of Hamas. They are interrupting official government proceedings. Will there be federal charges? Solitary confinement? Will FBI raid their homes? WHO PAID for their buses, signs & t-shirts?" --->READ MORE HERE
