Fox News – Around 60 people assembled in front of Mac’s Public House in Staten Island after its co-owner, Danny Presti, was taken away in handcuffs Tuesday night.

Holding signs, the protesters sang “God Bless America” and the chorus to Twisted Sister’s “We’re Not Gonna Take It.”

One sign read: “Lock up criminals, not Americans.”

Christine Salica of Westerleigh, a make-up artist who has been out of work since March, told the Staten Island Advance.

“To me this is a revolution. [Gov. Andrew] Cuomo and his legislators are collecting our paychecks and they are putting us out of work.”

The bar has been fined thousands of dollars as it continues serving patrons indoors and operating past the 10 p.m. curfew for restaurant service that Cuomo imposed citywide.

“We are a community,” Presti told the crowd outside the tavern. “We take back Staten Island tonight. We take all the states back. This is how we take our country back.”
