The rally kicked off Climate Week and takes place as world leaders gather in New York for the United Nations General Assembly, three days ahead of the UN’s Climate Ambition Summit.

Organisers estimated 75,000 people took part in Sunday’s march.

The mass demonstration is part of a global wave of mobilisations focused on ending the era of fossil fuel reliance.
