Crowd Gathers For ‘Occupy City Hall’ Protest In New York City

Protesters gathered Tuesday outside of New York City’s City Hall to demand that the city council vote to cut $1 billion from the NYPD budget.

A man showed up in the afternoon wearing a Spider-Man costume to encourage protesters to engage in dialogue with those they disagree with.

If “the 20-somethings, the 30-somethings, even the teenagers, don’t learn how to have a conversation with people, our peers that may think different than us, we ain’t gonna progress as a society,” he told the crowd. “You gotta have discussions, you gotta learn how to have a dialogue … and that’s what this generation has lost.”

Spider-Man arrived at the occupy spot with pizzas and a speech about learning to listen to those who disagree with you:

He later had a run-in with a Trump supporter who showed up at the protests with a sign that said “all lives matter.” A crowd confronted the man as Spider-Man tried to de-escalate the situation. The Trump supporter was eventually lead away by the police. (RELATED: ‘It’s Definitely A Revolution-Liberation Movement’: Protesters Demand $1 Billion Cut To NYPD Budget)
