Saturday, May 15, 2021. New York City – On Friday, May 14, 2021, Palestinians and their allies held a teach-in at Urban Plaza located at 31 West 53rd Street, in the borough of Manhattan, New York City. The organization “Within Our Lifetime” organized the teach-in.
After the teach-in, they marched to the New York City Police Department (NYPD) Midtown Precinct North (306 West 54th Street and 8th Avenue), to demand the release of a Palestinian young man who was arrested and was brutalized by several NYPD officers.
During the march, demonstrators burned a Israel flag and chanted different slogans demanding freedom for Palestine. They also burned a Israeli flag outside of the 43rd NYPD precinct (corner of West 54th Street and 8th Avenue).
Within Our Lifetime said on Instagram, “Today we showed New York City that there’s strength in numbers and that nobody gets left behind!
One of our Palestinian youth was arrested early on in the teach in. So we went to look for him at the precinct. They wouldn’t tell us if he was there so we took over the intersection until we got more information. We told them we were not leaving without our brother. So we camped out in front of the precinct for hours. People parked their cars, we did dabke on the Israeli flag, we played Palestinian resistance music, and we prayed Asr & Maghreb. We chanted for his release and for Palestine. Hours later he was finally let go, with injuries to his face. He was so overwhelmed with gratitude from the solidarity, he could hear us in his cell. This is what solidarity looks like. Not leaving one of our own behind. Today was a victory as we defended the right for Palestinians youth to protest here, and we stood with our brother like we stand with Palestine. Palestinian youth have a right to resist from NYC to Palestine!
Inspired by Malcolm X’s words once again “we need allies who are going to help us achieve a victory.” Today was a victory for our community here, and inshallah within our lifetime the victory of a liberated Palestine will come.”

Mexicanos Unidos will be marching as a contingent from Sunset Park to Join the Nakba Day rally in Bay Ridge on Saturday, May 15. Join Mexicanos Unidos at 3pm at the corner of 44th Street and 5th avenue.
Mexicanos Unidos says on Instagram, “We must read the signs. Imperialism is crumbling. Everyday we must recommit to the struggle. Palestine will be free within our lifetime. Black liberation will be achieved within our lifetime. Working-class hegemony will be established within our lifetime. Until then, we will continue to organize against capitalism, imperialism, and all their appendages—always taking into account the arduous task of building the future we are for.
Long live the intifada! Long live international solidarity!
Tomorrow (Saturday, May 15), we’ll be Informing the Sunset Park community about the Palestinian struggle for liberation. Media giants like TV Azteca and Televisa have sustained the status quo. We do not expect them to cover the Crisis in Gaza with any justice or integrity. We will arrive in Bay Ridge at 4:30 for the @wolpalestine Action.”
