Protesters can’t get to Met Gala as police make arrests

Pro-Palestinian protesters rallied outside Hunter College on the Upper East Side on Mon., May 6, before marching off toward the Metropolitan Museum of Art, in hopes of demonstrating outside the glitzy annual Met Gala.

However, they never made it there. Police blocked the protesters’ way to the Met, arresting more than two dozen of them.
