Manhattan Monument Vandalised As Protesters Take to New York Streets

The Maine Monument in Manhattan, New York City, was vandalised, police footage shared on April 22 shows.

Video shared by the New York City Police department (NYPD) shows phrases like ‘Stonewall was a riot’, ‘ACAB’ and ‘stop killing our kids’ scrawled on the monument at Columbus Circle.

In the caption accompanying the video, the NYPD said “vandalism is not part of peaceful protest. We are working to de-escalate the situation to prevent further damage from occurring.”
