Pro-Palestinian protesters disrupted many Chicago travelers’ plans by blocking the entrance to the O’Hare International Airport … forcing several people to hoof it by foot to the terminal.

Check it out … protesters blocked the I-190 access road to the Chicago-area airport — this as a group sat with their arms interlocked across the highway. Others stood and chanted “Free Palestine” … and there were even drummers out there as the protest raged on.

Police were on the scene to contain the protest … but the demonstration still caused gridlock traffic to form outside of O’Hare.

Many travelers chose to abandon their rides to the airport … as several people were spotted dragging their luggage while walking on foot on the grassy median. According to CBS News, the protest lasted less than an hour, with traffic resuming by 9:15 AM.

Per CBS News, police have not confirmed any arrests tied to the protest.

This wasn’t the only protest to take place on Tax Day BTW — demonstrators blocked the Golden Gate Bridge’s southbound lanes outside San Fran, as well as Interstate 880’s northbound lanes in the Bay Area. — all while calling for a ceasefire in the Israel-Hamas war.
