A group of pro-Palestine protestors in California blocked a U.S. Navy ship from leaving, believing the ship to be carrying aid for Israel.
In videos from the protest, demonstrators can be heard saying, “Joe Biden, you can’t hide; we charge you with genocide!”
The protestors also carried signs reading, “Biden, Pelosi: Don’t Aid and Abet War Crimes, Ceasefire!”
“Joe Biden you can’t hide, we charge you with genocide!”

According to The Western Journal, the demonstrators blocked the entrance to the ship while others held onto a rope ladder and refused to let workers close a door.
At around 3 p.m., authorities removed the protestors holding the rope ladder.
The protest follows the House of Representatives approving $14.3 billion in aid for Israel.
