tIn New York City, climate and housing activists shut down Park Avenue for the fifth straight day Saturday, the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Sandy, to demand banks and major corporations stop funding fossil fuels, and that Governor Hochul tax wealthy New Yorkers to enact a Green New Deal. Dozens of activists were arrested over the past week during actions at JPMorgan Chase, BlackRock, and in front of BlackRock CEO Stephen Schwartzman’s apartment building. The protests were organized by Extinction Rebellion, New York Communities for Change, Sunrise NYC and other groups.
