Here’s an update from some incredible activists at “The Five Colleges” in Massachusetts:
Students and community members gathered in downtown Amherst, MA to break the climate silence that has been deafening the national political discourse. Snow did not keep away student speakers, community activists, 350.org organizers, and Green Party Presidential Candidate Jill Stein. All rallied to seriously confront the climate crisis and help end the fossil fuel industry’s power and influence on government. Students called for their universities to divest from the industry and united to further their local part of climate movement.
