Protesters supporting Palestine invade Brooklyn Museum

Protesters supporting the Palestinian cause, including members of 'Within Our Lifetime,' assembled at the Brooklyn Museum. Certain protesters managed to enter the building with the aim of shutting it down. A banner proclaiming 'Free Palestine' was displayed on the museum's roof, resulting in multiple arrests. As the conflict between Israel and Hamas got worse, police and protesters got into fights that were caught on camera. The Brooklyn Museum kept records of staff abuse and damage to artwork. Because of what was going on, the museum stopped earlier than planned. Patch's website has news about Crown Heights all the time.
