October 28 2022 MANHATTAN, New York – 16 ARRESTED, a person on wooden tripod – removed by the police, as climate activists blocked the roadway near Park Avenue and 47th street this morning.
Protesters formed a blockade on Park Avenue, home to many of New York’s billionaires and largest financial corporations, while holding mock pitchforks and climbing atop 20-foot-tall tripod.
A man angrily ripped through a Climate protest sign “Your greed = Climate Chaos”, later confronting them – “You don’t pay taxes, trust me”, as Activists took over Park Avenue outside of Chase Bank and HSBC in Manhattan.
Other protesters held banners saying “Your Greed = Climate Chaos”, “Your Investments Are Killing the Earth”, and “How Dare You Plunder the Earth”.
The protest is part of a ongoing weeklong “Occupy Park Avenue” series of disruptions.
