70 “Extinction Rebellion NYC” activists arrested blocking street outside NYT Building

Published on Jun 23, 2019
70 environmental activists with “Extinction Rebellion NYC” shut down the streets in front of the The New York Times headquarters. The group says that the media, including NYT, are complicit in minimizing climate change, which they see as a “catastrophe” and form of “genocide.” A New York Times spokesperson told CNN, “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.” “Climate change is mass murder!” chanted the remaining activists as they awaited arrest. “Tell the truth! Tell the truth!” “I don’t care about your plastic straws,” one activist told News2Share contributor Ed Fabry. “We need to hold the people in power accountable for the damage they’re doing to the environment.” Filmed by News2Share contributor Ed Fabry
