USA: Extinction Rebellion activists occupy top Democrat's office to launch hunger strike

Activists from the climate action group Extinction Rebellion occupied the office of the Speaker of the US House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi in Washington DC on Monday demanding a one hour on-camera meeting. Spokesman for Extinction Rebellion in Washington Nick Brana said: «Nancy Pelosi is now standing in the way of declaring a climate emergency, she's standing in the way of a Green New Deal... Еще. The Green New doesn't even go far enough, according to what scientists say. She can't even allow a non-binding symbolic resolution to pass.» The activists are taking part in a week-long global hunger strike to demand action from governments on climate crisis. Nearly 300 people said they will join the action.
