Chaos erupted Friday night as thousands of left-wing activists and Antifa members converged on Grand Central Station in New York City to demonstrate against the police, dubbed the “F*** the Police” protests.

As reported by The Millennial Post on Friday, multiple demonstrators were arrested during the chaotic and violent protests. And as documented via posted photos from NYC authorities, possibly dozens of acts of vandalism were committed.

“Masked person screams and resists arrest at the far-left ‘F— the Police’ antifa protest at Grand Central,” reporter Andy Ngo captioned one video. Another video showed, possibly, the first arrest of the night at the Grand Central Station-area protests.

More footage shows left-wing activists screaming that police officers are “racist.”

“Far-left protesters chant: ‘How do you spell racists? NYPD’ at the ‘F— the Police’ antifa demonstration in Manhattan. There have been multiple arrests,” Ngo captioned the post.

“Another arrest in front of the Rolex store on 42nd which led to lots of shoving. Woman arrested for tagging ‘FTP’ (f*** the police) on store windows,” reported Brendan Krisel, a reporter for New York City Patch.

Krisel also posted a photo of vandalism on a store window, reading “FTP,” or “F*** The Police.”

In another video, protesters are chanting that they will “shut it down” if they do not get “justice.”

The Twitter account for the Police Benevolent Association of the City of New York posted photos of potential weaponry at the protests and acts of vandalism.

“The anti-cop agitators causing havoc in our city tonight have made it clear that violence against cops is on their agenda. Weapons like this are being displayed on social media. ALL MEMBERS: REMAIN ALERT AND BACK EACH OTHER UP,” the account captioned a photo of a knife that says “FTP” and “Aim for the neck.”


As noted by The Daily Wire on Friday morning, a far-left Antifa group called “Decolonize This Place” outlined plans to protest “not only against police in the subway but also to demand riders be allowed to ride the trains for free.”

“Photos show glue being poured over subway turnstiles, doors being held open with zip ties, and vandalism on the walls of stations,” The Daily Mail noted.

In the video posted to social media by Decolonize This Place, a masked member directed his followers: “We encourage you to link up with your friends, your family, and think of the ways you can move in affinity to build, and f**k s**t up on J31 all day long. The mood for J31 is simple: F**k your $2.75. No cops in the MTA, free transit, no harassment period, and full accessibility.”

After 500 new officers were sworn-in last week to protect NYC transit, the Antifa group said via Facebook: “This is a declaration of war against our communities. That money should not be invested in the harassing and brutalizing of Black and brown folks. It should go toward making the MTA free, well maintained, and accessible to all.”
