By Black Radio Network Staff

                NEW YORK - Hundreds of people gathered inside New York’s Grand Central Station to rally in solidarity with the Orlando shooting victims.

                They carried signs, sang and talked about last Sunday’s worst mass shooting in American history at the Pulse nightclub and how it has affected them.

                A number of the demonstrators expressed dismay that some politicians used the Orlando bloodbath for political purposes.

                From Grand Central, the protestors marched down Seventh Avenue to Greenwich Village where at the Stonewall Inn, the scene of historic gay civil rights confrontations, the names of those killed in Orlando were read aloud.
