LOS ANGELES: Pro-Palestinian demonstrators blocked San Francisco’s Gold Gate Bridge on Monday, with aerial footage showing the entire span packed with traffic in one direction while lanes in the other direction were empty.

Demonstrators who were blocking traffic held a banner reading “Stop the world for Gaza.” Protest group A15 Action said it was coordinating a “multi-city blockade... in solidarity with Palestine.”

“In each city, we will identify and blockade major choke points in the economy, focusing on points of production and circulation with the aim of causing the most economic impact,” the group said on its website.
