Evict ICE Rally, Protest and March

This event was the launch of our Evict ICE NYC Campaign - we are demanding that RXR Realty evict ICE from the Starrett-Lehigh building.

On August 10th, around 500 people held a rally in Madison Square Park, and then marched to the ICE offices in the Starrett-Lehigh Office. As the march neared the intersection of 26th Street and the West Side Highway, a separate team of over 100 people blocked the West Side Highway, in a principled act of civil disobedience, to call attention to the nearby ICE offices.
