Dear CODEPINK friends,
It was great to join the Sunrise Movement, DSA, 350.org, Sunflower Alliance, and other groups today rallying at Nancy Pelosi’s office to ask her to create a “Select Committee to establish a Green New Deal”. There were over 200 people at the rally, the majority under age 30. Renay, Susan, Elana, Jackie and I were there to support the Green New Deal demands and the 40 or so volunteers who risked arrest. They blocked the four entrances to the Federal Building for nearly 3 hours in the biting cold, but there were no arrests.
We joined the singing and chanting and held signs that said
GREEN NEW DEAL? YES
WAR, WEAPONS & PLANET DESTRUCTION? NO
