Roads To LAX & JFK Airports Blocked By Demonstrators Calling For Peace In Gaza


Stopping people trying to travel during holidays won’t gain much sympathy

Protesters trying to promote a ceasefire between Israel and Palestine have blocked major roads leading to Los Angeles’ LAX Airport and New York’s JFK Airport.

The annoying form of demonstrations is unpopular as many 𝕏 users pointed out that preventing travelers from making it to the airport around Christmas and New Year’s will not elicit much sympathy.

I am sure blocking roads to JFK airport (and people missing flights) will win over lots of people to their cause for a ceasefire.
