A video showed pro-Palestinian protesters standing on a New York City war memorial, hanging a Palestinian flag on it and burning an American flag on the ground, while chanting “Free Palestine.”

The words “Gaza” and “Free Palestine” were also written on the memorial.

This occurred as the NYPD increased security for the Met Gala, with protesters marching outside and removing barricades.

Earlier, about two dozen were arrested as hundreds marched from Hunter College toward the Met, blocking traffic along the way before police stopped them in Central Park.
