MUST WATCH: PRO Palestine Supporters STORM The Capitol


The U.S. Capitol has just been infiltrated by hundreds of pro-Palestine protesters who have staged a sit in inside of the Capitol.

The Capitol Police have reported hey have already “arrested several individuals as chants of “ceasefire now” and “free Palestine” echoed around the building.”

Many are calling the protest an insurrection and are comparing the chaotic scene to January 6th.

Take a look here:

Per Fox 5 DC:

A pro-Palestinian protest is underway on Capitol Hill as demonstrators are occupying the Cannon Rotunda and large crowds are growing around the Capitol complex.

The Cannon House Office Building holds several House Committee and congressional offices.

U.S. Capitol Police say that demonstrations are not allowed inside Congressional buildings and are working to clear the crowd. Police have already arrested several individuals as chants of “ceasefire now” and “free Palestine” echoed around the building.

The detained protesters were lined up outside the building and are being shuttled to a temporary holding area in the Capitol complex. Capitol Police say demonstrators inside the Cannon Rotunda will be charged with illegally protesting inside a House Office Building.

They say already among these arrests, three people have been charged with assault on a police officer during processing.

USCP says it is monitoring the situation as more protesters are gathering around the House side of the Capitol Complex and because of that, they are temporarily rolling road closures for safety.

The Hill got the scoop too:

A large group of protestors entered the Cannon House office building Wednesday demanding an Israeli cease-fire, resulting in several arrests, Capitol police said.
“Demonstrations are not allowed inside Congressional Buildings,” the U.S. Capitol Police posted on X. “We warned the protestors to stop demonstrating and when they did not comply we began arresting them.”

The protest, organized jointly by the Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP) and IfNotNow, began at noon in front of the Capitol. Demonstrators urged Congress take action toward a ceasefire between Israel and Hamas, which controls the Gaza Strip.
The Biden administration has largely defended Israel’s retaliatory airstrikes on Gaza, after Hamas militants carried out a massacre of Israeli civilians earlier this month. But progressives in Congress have increased pressure on President Biden to urge restraint from Israel as the death toll in the Gaza Strip mounts.
