Demonstrators calling for a ceasefire in Gaza block traffic on the Boston University bridge during rush hour this morning, slowing traffic to a trickle.
The group chants “Ceasefire now!” during the protest, and also hold signs that say, “Let Gaza Live.” The bridge connects Boston and Cambridge.
ALERT: The Boston University Bridge at Commonwealth Avenue is shut down until further notice due to protestors, diverting all traffic, including ambulances, away from the area. pic.twitter.com/Kbvx81xxkl
