Climate activists threw tomato soup at Van Gogh’s sunflowers. What did you think? Was the protest effective? There are many perspectives and few correct answers. We discuss.
The reading list:
- Video of the souping
- Study says such protest reduce support
- Studies show such protest help the moderate groups.
- WaPo: Climate protests get weird
- Protests need to support those on the front lines
- Mother Jones says more protests coming in US
Because we recognize the necessity of personal accountability for our actions, because we accept responsibility for a building a durable future and because we believe it is our patriotic duty as citizens to speak out, we must insist the United States transform it’s energy sector, over the next decade, under a just and equitable plan, that uses regulations, investments and a price on carbon to safeguard our collective future.
Thanks for listening.
