Climate Defiance disrupted a speech by United States Vice President Kamala Harris Monday evening
During the protest, activists cried out about Maui fires and the fossil fuel record of the current administration. Unfortunately, Kamala was not able to address them, and instead tried to silence them. It’s common for her to laugh off opposition, but something seemed different this time.
Jay Waxse, Climate Defiance Member, describes a feeling of possibly being gaslit, “There is no way I could have stayed seated. Two times before I stood up, Kamala Harris invoked the importance of activism. As if she was expecting us, she tried to ignore me and just keep talking. It's like they know they're failing the planet. And they just don't care.”
Climate Defiance’s Twitter had this to say, “As we cried out about the tragic deaths in Hawaii and condemned her fossil fuel crimes, Kamala stood there and laughed. Horrendous. We deserve - and we need - actual climate leaders”
We DO NOT do petitions.
If people in power will not save us we will save ourselves
There is no choice, we need consistent, mass-turnout, nonviolent disruption to stop business as usual and compel politicians to act
Wherever you are, rise up and join the youth standing up FACE TO FACE with the climate criminals signing our lives away
We put our bodies on the line

“What are our responsibilities at this time? Because of the fossil fuel industry, we are facing horrors of a magnitude never before experienced in our existence. Our government continues to lead us to the edge of no return. We must stand up and defend ourselves. No one else is going to do it. It must be us, if we want to live.
Our methods must be disruptive, and they must be nonviolent. Our actions are evidence-based, credible, and we have a plan. The only thing missing at this point in time is YOU!”
