    Police were on the scene to contain the protest ... but the demonstration still caused gridlock traffic to form outside of O'Hare.

    Many travelers chose to abandon their rides to the airport ... as several people were spotted dragging their luggage while walking on foot on the grassy median. According to CBS News, the protest lasted less than an hour, with traffic resuming by 9:15 AM.

    Per CBS News, police have not confirmed any arrests tied to the protest.

    This wasn't the only protest to take place on Tax Day BTW -- demonstrators blocked the Golden Gate Bridge's southbound lanes outside San Fran, as well as Interstate 880's northbound lanes in the Bay Area. -- all while calling for a ceasefire in the Israel-Hamas war.

    Two additional protests are planned for Monday, according to Bay City News Service.
