Pro-Palestine organizer responds to backlash for marching on cancer hospital: ‘Medical institutions aren’t innocent!’

Pro-Palestinian protesters have drawn few, if any limitations on the disruptions they are willing to create in support of a cease-fire in Gaza that will ensure the survival of the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas.

But a New York City cancer hospital that houses a pediatric department?

“We will continue to march as we talk about another complicit institution, the Memorial Sloan Kettering Center,” an organizer with a bullhorn told a mob of demonstrators marching in the street.

The Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center is located in Manhattan. The renowned hospital was founded in 1884 and is one of the top cancer treatment centers in the country, according to Rankings.

“Make sure they hear you, they’re in the windows,” the organizer said of the children.

More from The Washington Free Beacon:

The protesters were part of a demonstration called “Flood Manhattan for Gaza: MLK Day March for Healthcare” that a group called Within Our Lifetime organized. They did so to “stand with the Palestinian people amid a grave healthcare crisis amidst the genocide in Gaza,” the group said on Instagram. The marchers took to the streets “to demand an end to the genocide, to end all U.S. aid to Israel, to lift the siege and blockade on Gaza in order to prevent the healthcare system’s total collapse and hundreds of thousands of more deaths from illnesses if the bombs do not kill them first.”

“MSK shame on you, you support genocide too,” the crowd chanted at the protest.


Nerdeen Kiswani, a Palestinian organizer for Within Our Lifetime, who studied law at CUNY, tried to justify their actions while responding to a tweet from television personality Piers Morgan calling their behavior “disgusting.”

“We called out hospitals supporting the genocide in Gaza as Palestinian cancer patients are going to DIE w/ no treatment if not killed by bombs first. These facts ARE disgusting,” she wrote.

“Sloan Kettering accepted a *400 million dollar donation* from billionaire Zionist Ken Griffin, the largest in their history. This was *after* he threatened pro-Palestine student activists at Harvard with revoked job offers. Our medical institutions are not innocent bystanders,” she added in a separate post.

Here’s a quick sampling of responses to the story, as seen on X:
