Police Brutality Protesters Interrupt Sunday Morning Brunch at Maialino, Resto, and Others

New, 1 comment

Similar protests may take place next weekend, too.


Protests dubbed #BlackBrunchNYC interrupted mimosas and eggs at Maialino, Resto, and a few other restaurants this Sunday, reports Gothamist. Protestors, who are part of the #BlackLivesMatter movement that emerged after the deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner, spread out in dining rooms and read aloud the names of individuals killed by the NYPD. Similar protests took place in Oakland.

It's not quite clear why the protestors decided to target brunch, but it appears on Twitter that similar demonstrations may be planned for next weekend too.

None of the restaurants have offered comments.
