Protestors of the recent decision of a grand jury not to indict the NYPD officer who applied a “chokehold” which contrubuted to the death of Eric Garner during an arrest took their protest to Apple’s iconic Appel Store Fifth Avenue glass cube on Friday.
“The protesters staged what Reuters reporter Robert MacMillan called ‘a mass die-in’ inside the flagship Apple Store for about fifteen minutes,” Mike Beasley reports for 9to5Mac. “MacMillan tweeted coverage from the protest, which lasted from 6:35 to about 6:50 PM according to the timestamps. MacMillan said that no arrests were made, no looting took place, and the entire event was peaceful overall.”
Beasley reports, “When asked why they had chosen the Apple Store, one of the protesters replied that there was no better place ‘than a big glass building to make a point.'”
