The #BodegaStrike is giving New Yorkers all the feels


Grabbing a pack of gum on the way back from the subway Thursday won’t be easy as normal for New Yorkers. But they aren’t getting mad — instead, they’re snapping photos and showing love to their neighborhood bodegas on social media. 

Instagram and Twitter have been filling up with #BodegaStrike photos as people stand in solidarity with an estimated 1,000 neighborhood grocers, a protest organized by the local Yemeni-American community against Donald Trump’s travel ban.

#BodegaStrike makes me SO PROUD to be a New Yorker. Honored to pray with my Muslim brothers and sisters#nomuslimban #NoBanNoWall
