Thousands of South Koreans ‘die’ in protest against climate change

Thousands of South Koreans, led by activists, laid on the ground signifying their deaths in a demonstration to demand action on climate change ahead of next week’s climate summit at the United Nations.

Police estimated that about 3,000 people gathered in central Seoul while holding banners carrying messages such as ‘save earth save us’ and ‘It’s time to act’.

Activists from environmental organizations, schools and religious groups took part and urged a government and people to take action for climate change and reducing carbon dioxide emissions.

The United Nations have called climate change the “defining issue of our time” and are planned to host a climate summit on next week. 16-year-old Swedish activist Greta Thunberg will speak at the summit on Monday, September 23, during the annual gathering of world leaders for the UN General Assembly.
