Extinction Rebellion Activists Demand New York Divest from Fossil Fuels

HeadlineFeb 10, 2020

Eleven climate activists from Extinction Rebellion were arrested Friday as the group staged a die-in and occupied the office of the New York state comptroller to call attention to the climate crisis. The activists are demanding New York divest pensions from fossil fuel investments.

Mark Dunlea: “The New York state comptroller keeps $13 billion in Exxon and other fossil fuel companies, and that contributes to the destruction of life.”
