VIDEO: 100 Black Lives Matter Protesters Shut Down NYC's George Washington Bridge


Police arrested six Black Lives Matter protesters Saturday after a crowd stalled traffic on the George Washington Bridge connecting New York City and New Jersey.

“Around 100 protesters took part in the rowdy, two-borough rally, first marching from The Bronx into Manhattan on the Cross Bronx Expressway,” according to the New York Post.

The group moved onto the upper level of the George Washington Bridge around 7:30 p.m. and blocked traffic for about 20 minutes before police arrived and dispersed them.
