New York Police Arrest 70 Activists
The New York Times headquarters was besieged by a large number of environmental activists, most of whom have been detained and are already bringing charges. In particular, the detainees demanded that The New York Times begin to treat climate change as a crisis situation.
The street was blocked and banners were hung with "climate change = mass murder," with the word "change" crossed out and replaced with "emergency," according to pictures posted by the website of 1010 Wins radio.
The protesters were going to take radical measures, according to the protesters themselves, everyone was ready to be arrested, if only the media and the state paid close attention to this question.
“There is no national news organization that devotes more time, staff or resources to producing deeply reported coverage to help readers understand climate change than The New York Times,” spokesperson Danielle Rhoades Ha said in a statement, adding the newspaper published 795 articles about the issue in 2018.
Reddit users do not really believe that this rally will lead to radical changes in the fight against the climate crisis.
