We flew our thermal airship over a Clinton campaign event in Seattle asking Hillary to say no to fossil fuel money.
Greenpeace flew its thermal airship last week in Seattle before the Washington State Democratic caucus with a message urging Secretary Clinton to “Say No To Fossil Fuel Money.” Joined by more than 20 partners, Greenpeace has been campaigning for Secretary Clinton to drop her fossil fuel connections since January.

Greenpeace also flew its thermal airship with the message to Secretary Clinton last month in Las Vegas during the Democratic Nevada caucus. Volunteers have also brought the demand for Clinton to reject fossil fuel money to more than 10 fundraisers, debates and rallies across the country. Secretary Clinton responded to Greenpeace’s request last month committing to initiate a process that would reverse the effect of the Citizens United decision and restore the full protections of the Voting Rights Act. However, the statement did not include a commitment to reject fossil fuel money.

According to data compiled by Greenpeace’s research department, Secretary Clinton’s campaign and the Super PAC supporting her have received more than $4.5 million from the fossil fuel industry during the 2016 election cycle. While Greenpeace does not officially endorse any political candidate or party, we’re determined to show each candidate that our membership is looking for meaningful climate action and environmental justice in their platforms and policies.
