Die-In at the UN: The Climate Mobilization Protests the Paris Agreement Signing


 
Dag Hammarskjold Plaza, New York, NY; April 22, 2016

As 171 nations gathered Friday morning to sign the Paris Agreement, and most environmental organizations hailed this as an “historic” achievement, The Climate Mobilization staged a die-in, collapse scenario outside the United Nations to demonstrate the truth of this agreement: it puts us on a path to a 3.5°C temperature rise and the collapse of global civilization.

Instead of the “carbon gradualism” of the Paris agreement, protesters demanded a WWII-scale climate mobilization to rapidly eliminate emissions and draw excess greenhouse gasses out of the atmosphere.
