Amazon Fires: Hundreds march to denounce Brazilian President

Hundreds of climate activists in New York marched from Bryant Park to the United Nations on Saturday to demand an end to the burning of the Amazon rainforest in Brazil.

They also called for the removal of Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro over his handling of the emergency.

"The earth is on fire.

The Amazon is burning.

Bolsonaro is a liar," they chanted as they marched from Bryant park, down 42nd street to the UN.
