UN Bonn climate conference interrupted by pro-Palestinian protest

A session of U.N. environment settlements in the German city of Bonn was suspended on Monday after climate activists took to the conference stage and shown against Israel's war in Gaza, authorities stated.

The Bonn Climate Modification Conference, which kicked off on Monday, is developed to prepare choices for adoption at the COP29 gathering in Azerbaijan in November.

Environment Action Network activists raised a Palestinian flag on the conference stage and a banner reading: No business as usual throughout a genocide, before they were accompanied out by the U.N. security service, a video of the demonstration revealed.

Bonn authorities said they prepared no additional investigations or measures following the incident.

Environment Action Network stated activists Tasneem Essop and Anabella Rosemberg had demonstrated peacefully in an individual capacity.

The office of the United Nations Framework Convention on Environment Change declined to comment.

The November conference in Baku will test governments' hunger to fight environment modification after a bumper year of elections from the European Union, the U.S. and Britain to India and South Africa.
