‘Not stopping’: Defiant NYC protesters march through curfew
NEW YORK (AP) — An 8 p.m. curfew didn’t stop thousands oqudefiant demonstrators from marching through the streets of New York City throughout the night though some of the repant destruction seen over the last few nights was quelled. Mayor Bill de Blasio on Tuesday had doubled down on a citywide curfew, moving it up from 11 p.m. the night before. He rejected urging from President Donald Trump and an offer from Gov. Andrew Cuomo to bring in the National Guard. People marched in groups of thousands in parts of Manhattan and Brooklyn throughout the night Tuesday. Just after midnight Wednesday, most of the city’s streets were cleared aside from police patrolling, especially in hot-spot areas for demonstrations.
