Pro-Palestinian Protest Delays Newspaper Deliveries

Pro-Palestinian demonstrators staged a protest outside the New York Times printing facility in Queens, one of the nation’s largest facilities, causing potential delays in the delivery of several prominent newspapers on Thursday morning.

Police reported that around 1 a.m. on Thursday, protesters obstructed trucks from entering the 300,000-square-foot building by barricading the roads with debris. Many protesters formed a human chain, linking arms and utilizing tubes to connect to each other, while displaying signs that read, “Stop the presses. Free Palestine” and “Consent for genocide is manufactured here.”

The facility handles the printing of several major newspapers, including the New York Times, USA Today, Wall Street Journal, Newsday, and the New York Post. Across the country, there are a total of 27 printing facilities.

Law enforcement responded to the scene to disperse the protesters, although no arrests were made. Eventually, trucks were able to access the building.
