City workers, including members of the New York City Fire Department (FDNY), New York Police Department (NYPD), staged another protest in opposition to the vaccine mandate for any municipal workforce.

As of this writing, there appears to be a very large crowd that possibly numbers into the thousands outside Gracie Mansion, where Mayor Bill de Blasio resides.

The Thursday protest comes just days after government workers held a march on Monday crossing the Brooklyn Bridge into Manhattan to show their displeasure for the same mandate.

Reuters has been live-streaming the event in its entirety, but very few, if any of the people in attendance have made themselves available to be interviewed by the outlet.

The reporter for the outlet has been going around asking for people to talk to them. One man gave a comment as to why he wouldn't talk to Reuters.

"Reuters will just misquote us," the man said.
