A large group of protesters briefly shut down traffic for miles on FDR Drive Sunday night.

By around 9:15 p.m., the group left the roadway, making their way to Marcus Garvey Park in Harlem, footage showed.

“No cops. No KKK. No fascist USA,” the protesters chanted.

The demonstration, billed as the “Black Womxn’s March,” had begun some four hours earlier from Times Square’s Red Steps before heading east.

The NYPD didn’t immediately respond to a request for information.
