The march started around noon outside the Federal Building on Wilshire Boulevard and wound its way through area streets, clogging traffic.
Demonstrators chanted and held signs saying “Free Palestine” and “End All U.S. Aid to Israel,” according to the Associated Press. They were heard shouting “long live intifada.” Police temporarily shut down traffic on Wilshire Boulevard and warned drivers to find alternate routes.
Some pro-Israel counter-protesters showed up, and police worked to keep the two factions apart. Protesters also gathered in Pittsburgh, New Orleans and Boston.
Videos circulating social media show protesters swarming a California Highway Patrol car and at some points kicking it.
