Youth climate activists confronted Senator Joe Manchin Thursday, demanding he back the Build Back Better Act and its provisions to combat the climate crisis.
Protesters: “We want to live! We want to live! We want to live! We want to live!”
Activists confronted Manchin multiple times, including blocking his Maserati as they demanded to know whether their futures were worth the profits he makes and chanting “We want to live!” as he slowly tried to drive through the crowd. The protests were led by five young people who earlier this week ended a two-week hunger strike demanding real action on the climate crisis from Washington.
