3 of Climate Defiance Arrested

Gina left the stage and the auditorium was subsequently emptied. Three members of Climate Defiance were arrested Tuesday, July 25th, when they demonstrated during Gina Raimondo's speech in the Reagon Building of the Wilson Center.

Gina Raimondo had has just approved a $100 million dollar fossil fuel project in Indonesia and the Biden Administration has approved a multitude of fossil fuel projects, including the Willow Project which is oil drilling in the arctic wildlife refuge and an even bigger LNG project. They are also approving new oil and gas leases in the Gulf of Mexico. 

Three are announced to be in custody, to be held overnight, including Michael Greenberg, founding member of Climate Defiance.
