HeadlineApr 17, 2019

Back in the United States, Extinction Rebellion activists took aim at the Republican Party, protesting in front of the Republican National Committee headquarters in Washington, D.C. Capitol police arrested a reported eight members of the group as they occupied city streets. Demonstrators called on passersby to support their actions and take a stand against fossil fuel-funded politicians.

Extinction Rebellion activist: “The RNC has been called the biggest criminal enterprise in the history of our species. They are the center of climate denial. We’re out here today as part of the international Extinction Rebellion to let the RNC know that we know what they’re doing. We’re going to continue to call attention to their denial, to how they’re ruining our planet.”

More actions across the U.S., the U.K. and other parts of the world are expected in the coming days.
