These are New York’s Laws on Protests and Demonstrations in Light of Manhattan’s Split Between Pro-Palestine and Pro-Israel Supporters


The Hamas-Israel war led to mixed reactions amongst the public. In New York, Pro-Palestine and Pro-Israel supporters clashed, with both parties protesting in Manhattan. The protestors rallied and ended up near the United Nations office. NYPD officers were deployed to ensure zero violence among New Yorkers.

In New York, protests are allowed in public places, which include rallies, demonstrations, and press conferences. The city will require a permit in these cases: when the demonstration takes up entire public streets and uses sound amplification. 

The City’s website provides other stipulations, such as permit requirements and fees, participant counts, etc.
