At least 13 protesters were arrested outside the New York Post’s printing press early Friday after staging a shocking demonstration and attack on press freedom by preventing the delivery of newspapers to tens of thousands of New Yorkers.
Extinction Rebellion, the unruly group behind the protest, targeted the Queens printing press used by The Post’s parent company, News Corp, as well as The New York Times and USA Today’s publisher, Gannett.
The group admitted to intentionally trying to “disrupt the
distribution of these corporations’ flagship daily publications” over
what they claimed was a lack of climate change coverage across major
U.S. media outlets. https://nypost.com/2022/04/22/13-protesters-arrested-for-derailing-delivery-of-the-post-to-70k-new-yorkers/
