Police Arrest Another 90 Activists as Climate Protests Continue in Front of White House

HeadlineOct 14, 2021

In Washington, D.C., another 90 climate activists were arrested outside the White House Wednesday demanding President Biden take real action to halt the climate crisis. This is Anthony Lorenzo Green, a Washington, D.C., community organizer and city council candidate.

Anthony Lorenzo Green: “We must repair the harm caused by environmental racism. That means we must have a world that no longer bows to the coal, oil and gas industries, that have a long history of poisoning our land and rivers. I know climate change is real because I live in a community where homes flood every year.”
