Pro-Palestine Demonstrators Occupy Senate Building

Dozens of pro-Palestine protestors occupied the Hart Senate office building.

Videos show the protestors yelling, “Ceasefire now!”

The protestors were later removed from the premises.

According to Fox 5 of Washington, D.C., 49 protestors were arrested.

Senator Thom Tillis (R-NC) shared his disdain for the protest, tweeting, “Anti-Israel protestors making a mess of the Senate. I’m sure they’ll change hearts and minds by making hardworking Senate custodial workers spend their entire day cleaning up the mess they created. Thank you to Capitol Police and the Senate facility staff for upholding professionalism in the midst of such clownery.”
