Yemeni Bodega Trump Protest Brings Thousands to Brooklyn Borough Hall

Photo by MK Metz for McBrooklyn
Thousands of Yemeni merchants -- owners of the corner bodegas and grocery stores we shop in every day -- closed shop yesterday at noon to trek to Brooklyn Borough Hall to protest Trump's travel ban.

The ban targets Muslims from seven countries:  Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.

Supporters of all ethnicities joined their fellow New Yorkers in a remarkable show of unity.

Additional great photos and video here.
