Several hundred protesters gather in New York City’s Times Square to denounce Prime Minister Netanyahu during his visit for the UN General Assembly.

Many of the demonstrators came from Israel for a series of protests throughout the week.

The crowd waves Israeli flags and chants “democracy.” Many wear shirts reading “Save Israeli democracy” and “loyal to the Declaration of Independence.”

The protests in New York started at 3 a.m. local time outside Netanyahu’s hotel when he arrived.
