Yesterday morning we literally woke up Trump Hotel to the climate crisis...
We flooded the lobby of Trump Hotel with speakers, bull horns, banners and a massive alarm clock because leaving the Paris Agreement would be a nightmare. Just hours later, Trump announced he was putting off the decision for at least a few more weeks.
The resistance needs to be persistent and it needs to be loud. We’ve seen how effective people power has been at slowing down and fighting back against the administration. Right now, Trump is on the fence about the Paris Agreement and our movement can make sure he decides it’s not worth it to pull out.
Hours after our action, Press Secretary Sean Spicer stated that no decision on the Paris Agreement will be made until after G7 — which marks the second time the decision has been kicked down the road. If we keep the pressure on, we can ensure Trump never builds the momentum to leave the agreement.
Our movement is taking on the climate crisis on all fronts — from 200,000 people thundering the streets of D.C. to blockading the Trump Hotel entrance.
Persistent protest is a sign of real, actual strength. It shows that we're growing as a movement as we hold the line against the climate deniers, and the impact is unmistakable.
President Trump is mulling his decision on the Paris Agreement, and when he sits down to make the call, we’re making sure it happens with the sights and sounds of this movement taking to the streets fresh in his mind.
That's something he can’t deny.
