The night before the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, New York City Black Lives Matter activists stormed Macy’s iconic Herald Square store where the parade route begins as part of their solidarity demonstration with Minneapolis activist.
A series of photos and videos from Twitter captured the direct action, as protestors —including one carrying what appeared to be a communist flag—chanted curses against the police and marched through the store.
