New Yorkers Fight Unprecedented Vaccine Mandates In NYC! Large Union Protest at City Hall: Video and Photos
“New York Unions for Choice” hosted a large rally protesting Biden, former New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo, and NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio’s Medical Mandates at City Hall in Manhattan on Wednesday.
The New York City Department of Education has mandated the vaccine for all teachers,” said event organizer Michael Kane. “Our union, the United Federation of Teachers, have not come to our aid and rolled over. That is why I am announcing today that I am leaving my union.”
The protest, described to be the largest protest of rank-and-file union members in NYC History, had thousands of attendees- from teachers, firefighters, nurses, healthcare workers, EMTs, EMS, police, detectives, sanitation, postal workers and federal workers who reject what they perceive to be a looming Covid-19 vaccine mandate now threatening their unions and freedom of choice.
Also in heavy attendance were NYC small business owners frustrated that the government is now demanding they police their own patrons.
New York City is the first major city in the United States to require proof of vaccination for indoor activities, also known as a “vaccine passport”. The new “Key to NYC” mandate requires patrons of indoor dining, fitness, entertainment, and performances to provide proof of Covid-19 vaccination. Employees at these establishments must also be vaccinated. There are no exceptions to this mandate, such as a negative COVID-19 test.
“Bill DeBlasio is a lame duck Mayor who is taking one last gasp power grab. His final act is literally designed to destroy small business owners and pit them against their customers,” said NYC Comptroller Candidate John Tabacco. “Asking small business owners to become police is class warfare and New Yorkers will not comply.”
Anti-mandate rallies have been a regular fixture in New York City for the past ten months, but this protest marks the largest to date as the mandatory vaccine mandate took effect as of August 17th and will be fully enforced as of September 13th.
“The rest of the country has been waiting for New York to come alive!” said rally speaker Kevin Jenkins in response to the large crowd reaching
