Greenpeace campaigner and activist Charlie Jiang addresses the second Fire Drill Friday. Inspired by Greta Thunberg and the youth climate strikes as well as Reverend Barber's Moral Mondays and Randall Robinson's often daily anti-apartheid protests, Jane Fonda has moved to Washington, D.C. to be closer to the epicenter of the fight for our climate. Every Friday through January 2020, she will be leading weekly demonstrations on Capitol Hill to demand that action by our political leaders be taken to address the climate emergency we are in. We can't afford to wait.
Speakers included: Jane Fonda; Charlie Jiang, Sam Waterston, Matt Nelson, Jasilyn Charger and Abigail Leedy, 8.19.90.Second Fire Drill Friday
