'Decolonize This Place' Protesters Disrupt Brooklyn Museum, Condemn 'Imperial Plunder'

On a bustling spring Sunday, with the Brooklyn Botanic Garden's Cherry Blossom Festival and the Brooklyn Museum’s popular David Bowie exhibit in full swing, some 65 protesters from 20 different New York City activist groups descended upon the museum for a lively demonstration against "imperial plunder," among other things.

Purchasing tickets and entering in small groups, activists surreptitiously gathered in the Brooklyn Museum's grand third floor atrium. At the sound of a whistle, the cavernous chamber was suddenly flooded with noise and movement, as demonstrators unfurled huge painted banners from the floor above, singing, and passing out leaflets to curious museum-goers.
