Climate Defiance disrupted a huge banquet and stopped Federal Reserve Chair, Jerome Powell’s speech, at an economics forum in Manhattan. The Federal reserve’s main job is to ensure stability in our economic system.
Currently, the federal reserve has been gambling away our future, which is why nearly 150 people were arrested last month at the Federal Reserve in a protest against the establishment’s financing of the fossil fuel industry.
Breaking: today we chased Fed Chair Jerome Powell off the stage at an elite economics forum in Manhattan.— Climate Defiance (@ClimateDefiance) October 19, 2023
Powell chooses every day to torch the planet. He could end fossil finance tomorrow, but refuses. We're on the brink. We could lose everything.

KH of climate defiance had this to say, “How is climate change not a risk to the financial system? How? He has shirked his duty. He has hidden from the greatest crisis of our time. He serves the Wall Street Finance Bros and no one else. I will not stand for this. We will not stand for this. Business-as-usual is a death sentence for my whole generation. So we will stop it in its tracks.”
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!”
