First responders protested in New York City against the vaccine mandate for city workers by tossing bags of trash on the lawn of Mayor de Blasio’s Gracie Mansion. The symbolic gesture was to show what will happen when sanitation workers are let go for not getting the COVID vaccine. A sanitation slowdown hasn’t even changed the mind of a stubborn NYC mayor who claimed this afternoon there will be “no discussion” on the mandate that goes into effect Friday.

Video below shows thousands of FDNY, EMS, NYPD and Sanitation Workers gathered outside Gracie Mansion:

Daniel Presti, manager of Mac’s Public House, who kept their bar open against pandemic closures and Mandates last year, declaring it an ‘Autonomous Zone,’ spoke after throwing trash across to Blasio lawn.

“You want to join the fight? Welcome to the fight, because it’s a fight! Just showing up while politicians and union leaders tell you what you want to hear will not accomplish anything. We have been speaking and doing things peacefully for over a year,” said Presti
