Petro Pete Sent Packing By Climate Defiance
Climate Defiance Disrupted a keynote address by Transportation Secretary, Pete Buttigieg, calling him “Petro Pete” and remaining on stage until he, and the entire audience, was forced to vacate the event. Petro Pete, who normally has a way with words when given softball questions by the establishment, was unable to formulate an intelligible response to the accusations of gross negligence hurled against him by the youth led climate group, Climate Defiance.

Petro Pete is a coward. As we write he is ramming down our throats the Sea Port and GulfLink oil terminals - each worse than Keystone.
We must resist him with all we've got. And we will. pic.twitter.com/aVKeCre5eH
It’s unlikely Petro Pete has ever met resistance such as this, 30 constituents who are completely fed up - one of them actually was a volun-teer on his presidential campaign.
Now they are holding him accountable for his lackluster performance on climate. Climate Defiance are asking for Petro Pete to reject two projects in particular, a sea port oil terminal that would move 2,000,000 barrels of oil per day and a gulf link oil terminal that would move 1,000,000 barrels of oil per day.
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!”
