Crowd Fills New York City's Foley Square for 'Stop Asian Hate' Protest

Crowds of demonstrators met at Foley Square in Manhattan, on April 4, to kick off an organised protest against racism and violence targeting the Asian-American community.

Later on Sunday, “Stop Asian Hate” protesters forced the temporary closure of all Brooklyn-bound lanes on the Brooklyn Bridge, New York City officials said.
