A message to the UN

Greenpeace projected the message "Listen to the People, Not the Polluters" on the United Nations building. The projection was then translated into different languages, to be shared with communities around the world who also held rallies, marches, and protests drawing attention to the climate crisis.

Greenpeace International Director Kumi Naidoo said: "The massive public outcry over the weekend from around the world shows that the people are standing up to polluters. Now it's time for the UN representatives at this week's climate summit to do their part and make real, concrete plans for switching to renewable energy and putting dirty fossil fuels firmly in the past."
