Nine AIDS activists were arrested on Wednesday protesting New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg's AIDS services cuts.

The arrests took place on World AIDS Day outside the mayor's annual World AIDS Day Bagel Breakfast at the Brooklyn Public Library.

Wearing giant bagel costumes, the activists, members of the non-profit group Housing Works AIDS, chained themselves together and blocked traffic at Grand Army Plaza.

The activists chanted, “People with AIDS are under attack, what do we do? Act up, fight back!” as police hauled away their limp bodies.

Activists also disrupted Bloomberg's World AIDS Day speech and distributed Bagel Boycott fliers to those in attendance.

“AIDS activists are fed up with Bloomberg, who each December holds his World AIDS Day Bagel Breakfast, and then each January proposes devastating cuts for AIDS services, such as housing and nutrition, for low-income people with HIV,” the group said in a statement.

“Mayor Bloomberg's attitude to poor people with AIDS is 'Let them eat bagels!'” Charles King, president of Housing Works AIDS, said.

The group said it was protesting Bloomberg's combined 2008-2009 $12 million AIDS services cuts.

This year, Bloomberg proposed cutting the budget of the HIV/AIDS Services Administration, the agency that oversees housing, nutrition and other benefits for 45,000 poor New Yorkers with AIDS and their families.
