A group of pro-Palestine protestors took over the headquarters of the Israeli-tied BlackRock private equity group in New York City on Thursday, accusing the group of genocide as they unfurled a list naming each of the more than 4,000 Palestinian children known to have been killed by Israeli strikes on Gaza since the current hostilities began around October 7th.
“Shame to BlackRock!” the protestors shouted as they shut down the group’s New York headquarters building, occupying what appeared to be a lobby area around the entrance and exit doors.
“BlackRock you can’t hide! We charge you with genocide!” the group chanted, with several members standing behind a sign that read “SHUT DOWN GENOCIDE PROFITEERS FREE PALESTINE”.

Private equity group BlackRock and its CEO Larry Fink are closely associated with the governments and central banking systems of both Israel and the United States, with a main headquarters in New York City and another large outpost in Tel-Aviv, Israel, where BlackRock is based in the Rothschild Center, along Rothschild Boulevard.
BlackRock has played a shadowy role in recent global conflicts as, in addition to buying up properties in depressed communities around the United States, the private equity group has begun meddling in war zones. In Ukraine, BlackRock has already struck a reported agreement with Soros-backed President Volodymyr Zelensky and his Western handlers to help rebuild the nation when the over, assuming that all of Ukraine is not part of Russia by then.
The situation in Israel appears to be shaping up in much of the same way, with widespread concern growing that, assuming Israel steamrolls Gaza and turns it into the vacant “parking lot” their supporters say they should, BlackRock will come rushing into gobble up control and turn Gaza into its latest pet project.
Some have even expressed worry that BlackRock could construct 15-minute cities on the land that’s now home to more than 2 million Palestinians.
