Shut It Down For Palestine Protest At Crossgates Mall On Black Friday

As a 4-day halt to the attacks in Gaza started to allow for a limited hostage exchange, Shut It Down for Palestine protests took place across the country on Black Friday, the busiest shopping day of the year. The rallies called for a boycott of companies such as Motorola, Puma, Siemans, SodaStream and Re/Max for their role in profiting from the occupation of Gaza. In the Capital District, about 150 protestors braved the freezing cold at Crossgate. We hear from Chris, one of the rally organizers; Elizabeth, a Palestinian American; Kaya, holding a Jews for Palestine sign, and Steve, a former military person.
