Taxi drivers and allies gathered outside City Hall in Manhattan on Monday, October 25, on the sixth day of a hunger strike to demand a solution to the financial hardships they say are brought on by city policy.
Footage filmed by Whitney Hu shows the demonstrators in Lower Manhattan on Monday afternoon calling for “justice” and “action.”
“Arrests just happened,” said Hu in the Twitter post, and tagged Zohrank Mamdani and Shahana Hanif – two elect city officials – who were part in the hunger strike. According to Mamadi’s official Twitter account, five elected officials were arrested. Credit: Whitney Hu via Storyful
