Young people have already demonstrated they can take on powerful fossil fuel companies and force politicians to answer their call to action. To the millions of young people and allies worldwide who are striking today to demand climate justice: I stand with you. #ClimateStrike
What gives me hope right now is this new generation of young people who dream big and do not want to settle for the status quo. #ClimateStrike https://twitter.com/GretaThunberg/status/1175116447091216386
More than 1,000 Amazon employees have courageously challenged the richest man in the world over Amazon's massive carbon footprint—and they have already achieved results. I want to thank them and workers around the world who are walking off the job today for climate justice.
For too long, the mainstream media has ignored science and given a platform to climate change deniers. I am glad they are finally starting to give this issue the attention it deserves, and I am calling on them to continue shedding light on the seriousness of this global crisis.
It is unconscionable that amid global climate protests, tech giants like Microsoft are announcing major partnerships with Big Oil.
We must hold them accountable, demand they break ties with the fossil fuel industry, and move rapidly to sustainable energy. https://gizmodo.com/just-days-ahead-of-employee-climate-strike-microsoft-a-1838229409
Just getting to the climate march in DC, it’s an hour before we begin and there are thousands here.
We’re here to #ClimateStrike
July 2019 was the hottest month ever recorded #ClimateStrike
As thousands of people take to the streets today to demand bold climate change solutions, people in Texas are facing serious flooding. Our thoughts are with the people in southeast Texas. We will do everything we can to help those communities recover.
Two years ago, Hurricane María—fueled by climate change—devastated Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
Our message for the people of those islands: you are not forgotten. We will fight for you, as American citizens, to fully rebuild for a sustainable and resilient future.
99% of applications for loan forgiveness in this program are being rejected. The Department of Education is failing our public service workers and students.
- Stand up to Betsy DeVos and the predatory lenders
- Cancel student debt and make public colleges tuition-free https://twitter.com/RepJayapal/status/1174765440914153479
A U.S. airstrike was intended for ISIS, but killed 30 Afghan civilians. This is just one of the horrors of endless war. ISIS did not even exist when America invaded Afghanistan 18 years ago.
We need to end our longest war and bring our troops home. https://www.reuters.com/article/us-afghanistan-attack-drones-idUSKBN1W40NW
Think of how corrupt our political and economic system truly is. Instead of worrying about jail time, the billionaire culprits of America's opioid crisis have the audacity to ask for millions in bonuses for their top employees.
We need a political revolution in this country. https://twitter.com/washingtonpost/status/1174699173360353282
Ady is fighting two difficult battles at once: one against the horrific disease of ALS, and another against the insatiable greed of the insurance and drug companies. When we pass Medicare for All, it will be because of heroes like him who stood up and fought back. https://twitter.com/AdyBarkan/status/1174167117215612929
Last night, more than 20 Senate Democrats held the Senate floor to demand action on gun violence.
93% of Americans support universal background checks.
But @SenateMajLdr Mitch McConnell refuses to even hold a vote.
This is why we need Medicare for All. https://twitter.com/vyurkevich/status/1174036332320088065
.@SecPompeo: An attack on Saudi oil is NOT an attack on America. If you want a war, come to Congress to make your case. We will not let you drag the American people into another catastrophe in the Middle East.
Your job is to use diplomacy to resolve conflict—not incite more war. https://twitter.com/AmichaiStein1/status/1174361350467969024
U.S. trade agreements should stop the outsourcing of jobs, end the race to the bottom, protect the environment and lower the outrageously high price of prescription drugs.
@RepDebDingell is right: Trump’s NAFTA 2.0 falls far short of those standards. https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/debbie-dingell-nafta-20-needs-upgrading-before-democrats-approve-it/2019/09/16/4465aad0-d7cc-11e9-ac63-3016711543fe_story.html
Trump says he loves business and states' rights. Except when automakers and the state of California worked together to reduce car emissions.
How sick do you have to be, in the face of a climate emergency, to have your EPA block this effort to cut tailpipe pollution? https://twitter.com/washingtonpost/status/1174034731886923777
.@HasanMinhaj is right. Instead of just worrying about Wall Street, maybe it's time we start worrying about the 45 million Americans with $1.6 trillion in student debt. We could start by canceling it.
"I am alive today not because of insurance companies but despite them."
We are the only major country that allows private insurance companies to rip us off, rob us of our health, and drive our people into financial or emotional catastrophe. https://nyti.ms/2Lz75GG
