Protesters staged a “die in” Friday night in an Apple store on Fifth Avenue and in Macy’s at Herald Square.
Hundreds of people angry over police treatment of African-American men crowded the street outside the Apple store, and some made their way through the store’s large glass doors.
Zandir Santos, 30, of Brooklyn, relished in the idea that protesters had disrupted life at an Apple store and a Macy’s in New York. The filmmaker said this is a pivotal time in American history and that police must change how they treat people.
“The CEO of Apple knows we shut his store down–that means capitalist America is going to take us seriously,” he said. “We are going to shake up your business and we want to hit you where it hurts. ”
