Roughly 1,500 protesters across New York City rallied in the streets on Thursday night to call for an end to the war in the Middle East.

The gathering came after students from several schools also walked out of class to call for a cease-fire in the Israel-Hamas war.

The demonstration in Midtown, organized by pro-Palestinian groups, called for people to walk out of school or work for a citywide shutdown.
