Six protesters were arrested from the lobby of a building which houses the AIPAC offices Boston after chaining themselves together in protest of Israeli policy towards Palestinians, The Boston Globe reported on Wednesday.

The protesters, three men and three women, were arrested for trespassing after refusing repeated requests from the building's management and the police to exit the building peacefully, Boston police spokeswoman Officer Rachel McGuire said.

The protesters are members of a group called IfNotNow, an American Jewish group which claims it works for "the dignity and freedom of all Israelis and Palestinians."
