Police arrested 70 environmental protesters outside the New York Times headquarters.
Protesters blocked the streets, held banners saying “climate change” “mass murder” in midtown Manhattan.
The protest was organized by the Extinction Rebellion activist group.
The protestors demanded climate change measures as a climate emergency.
Demonstrators chanted “tell the truth”.
The protestors said they want the media to report on the climate emergency so that people can start pushing for more radical responses.
The protesters said they want media to treat climate change as the crisis it is.
Police removed the banners and arrested protesters who had climbed on The New York Times building.
