Protesters Arrested in New York City While Calling on the Federal Reserve to End Fossil Fuel Financing

In a significant act of civil disobedience, over 100 climate protesters were arrested in New York City as they blockaded the entrances to the Federal Reserve Bank. The demonstration, organized by groups like Climate Defenders, New York Communities for Change (NYCC), Oil and Gas Action Network, and Planet over Profit, aimed to pressure financial regulators and the Federal Reserve to restrict fossil fuel financing and treat oil, gas, and coal as high-risk investments. The protesters called for President Biden and the Federal Reserve to regulate banks and curb their support for fossil fuel companies. They demanded a one-for-one capital requirement on fossil fuel investments, compelling financial institutions to match every dollar they invest in fossil fuels with a dollar of their own funds to cover potential losses caused by these projects.
This protest followed a massive climate march in New York City, where tens of thousands of people urged President Biden to reduce fossil fuel usage. It is part of a global movement pushing central banks and financial regulators to tighten regulations on fossil fuel investments. Despite the growing impact of climate change and the financial risks it poses, the world's largest banks, mainly in the U.S., continue to invest billions in the fossil fuel sector. The action coincided with the United Nations talks on Sustainable Development Goals and the Climate Ambition Summit, emphasizing the urgency of addressing climate change and the need for financial institutions to play a critical role in combatting it.

                  @rukia_ahmed_abdi It should start with him because I understand he's the one who allows for the oil drilling to go on.

                        @johnte_ndeto there should be rights to protect protesters who want to air their grievances.

                        This is not acceptable and it's against humanity. They should be released immediately
