A protest of several hundreds-thousands of demonstrators took place on Manhattan on the 10th of October, in solidarity with Armenia in the Nagorno-Karabakh war which temporarily resurged in late 2020. They mainly criticized Trump’s friendly policy towards Erdogan and his Azeri counterpart and called on him to cut sales to Turkey. Protesters temporarily occupied the Brooklyn Bridge in the city as well and left without clashing with police. Assyrians, Albanians, and Iranians were all seen at the protest alongside their Armenian counterparts.
