Apparently ready to twerk and throw glitter at a moments notice, organizers are prepared to block more traffic in Washington, D.C.– for the climate.
Nothing gets your climate message across like snarling traffic to leave idling cars burning their fossil fuels and pumping exhaust into the air – and nobody seems to realize that more than #ShutDownDC who wants a repeat performance of Monday’s traffic jams.
According to the Strike DC website:
On Monday, 2,000 of us took to the streets of Washington, DC shutting down key intersections and disrupting business as usual to demand an immediate end to the age of fossil fuels, and a swift and just transition to renewable energy. A broad coalition of climate and social justice groups fanned out across downtown D.C. to seize 22 intersections over the course of the morning, blocking traffic during rush hour.
Monday’s #ShutDownDC mobilization was a huge step forward, but we still have a long way to go to create the level of disruption that we’ll need to force the politicians and rich power brokers to abandon their program of delay and inaction so we can move forward with a bold program to address the climate crisis.
Let’s hit the streets again on Friday, September 27th at 7am!
That means even more moms can be late in getting their children to school because climate and twerking and signs (see the video below)! This will certainly bring the desired support to the anti-fossil fuel cause.
