Recently, pages and accounts on social media have been circulating a video showing an American citizen intercepting President Joe Biden's motorcade to demonstrate solidarity for Palestine and Gazan children. However, the security personnel grabbed her and forcibly brought to the ground.
Misbar investigated the circulating claim and found it to be misleading, as the video is old and dates back to an American woman intercepting President Joe Biden’s motorcade in 2022. The incident has no connection to Palestine or the Israeli war on the Gaza Strip.
Woman Intercepts Biden's Motorcade in Los Angeles
The video dates back to June 2022, featuring a female demonstrator with a megaphone disrupting President Joe Biden's convoy in Los Angeles. Security personnel intervened, forcibly removing her from the path of Biden's motorcade.
At that time, Biden was en route to attend the Summit of the Americas. As the convoy passed through a car-free street, the woman entered the midst of the convoy, causing one of the cars to swerve.
The motive behind the woman's demonstration remains unknown. The Chief of Communications at the U.S. Secret Service issued a statement after her arrest, stating, “Shortly after 5:00 p.m., an adult female entered a restricted roadway along a motorcade route on Chick Hearn Ct. in Los Angeles.” He added, “As the woman approached passing vehicles, a United States Secret Service agent swiftly removed her from the roadway and placed her into custody. There was no impact to the motorcade movement or our protectees. Our investigation into this incident is ongoing."
Protests Erupt Across the United States Against Israeli Aggression on Gaza
Thousands protested in New York City on Friday, November 17, calling for Israel to cease its war on the besieged Gaza Strip and demanding the U.S. to end its military and financial support for Tel Aviv.
Recently, protests have erupted in front of the White House in Washington and other American cities, condemning the ongoing aggression on the Gaza Strip and the incursion of the occupation forces into the Al-Shifa Complex in Gaza. Protesters demanded U.S. President Joe Biden to exert pressure on Israel to halt the ceasefire.
Since the beginning of the Israeli war on Gaza on October 7, thousands have also protested in several U.S. cities, including New York and San Francisco, condemning the occupation’s atrocities in the beleaguered enclave.
