A protest in New York City Monday against COVID-19 vaccine mandates turned violent as the group made its way across the city.
The event began in Brooklyn at the headquarters of the New York City Department of Education (DOE). The DOE’s recent employee mandate gave teachers until this past Friday to receive at least one dose of a COVID vaccine, or else they would not be allowed to return to work. Independent reporter Brendan Gutenschwager captured footage of the events as they unfolded.
