NY Taxi Workers Alliance Announces No Pick-ups At JFK For 1 Hour In Protest Of ‘Muslim Ban’

The New York Taxi Workers Alliance is a membership based not-for-profit organization ‘fighting for the rights of NYC’s 50,000+ licensed yellow taxi drivers’ according to their website.

TGP reported earlier on the protests that erupted at JFK Airport after a refugee was temporarily detained by customs agents and subsequently released. Now this…

The NY Taxi Workers Alliance took to their Twitter account on Saturday to announce that they will halt all taxi pick-ups at JFK Airport from 6PM-7PM in solidarity with thousands protesting Trump’s so-called ‘Muslim ban’.

Protests work both ways. Perhaps people should choose transportation services that do not halt business for political reasons.
