Holding a demonstration in front of the United Nations to protest against the use of fossil fuels

Thousands of environmentalists in the city of New York, America, started a week-long demonstration last Sunday before the start of the United Nations General Assembly, with the aim of asking world leaders to end the use of fossil fuels.

According to Reuters, 15,000 people are expected to participate in the demonstration. A number of them held placards that read: End the use of fossil fuels; Fossil fuel kills; Declare a weather emergency.

This demonstration is a small part of the massive one-week protests that will be held in different countries. According to media reports, more than 500 demonstrations will be held in 54 countries, including America, Germany, England, South Korea, and India, and their goal is to take immediate action to prevent climate change and global warming.

The organizers of the demonstrations predict that a total of more than one million environmentalists will participate in the protests in different countries.

This demonstration is held while the United Nations is going to hold the COP 28 climate change conference in 2 months.

The United Nations recently warned in a report that the world is on a dangerous path towards global warming and that many measures need to be taken in all areas, including reducing the use of coal as fuel.

Many scientists believe that greenhouse gases caused by fossil fuels have increased global warming and natural disasters such as floods, famines, and forest fires.
