The resistance is alive and well

In a statement provided to WUSA 9, activist and Greenpeace Inc. Board Chair Karen Topakian says, “People in this country are ready to resist and rise up in ways they have never done before. While Trump’s disdain and disrespect for our democratic institutions scare me, I am so inspired by the multigenerational movement of progress that is growing in every state. Greenpeace has used nonviolence to resist tyrannical bullies since 1971, and we’re not going to stop now.”

“The sun has risen this morning on a new America, but it isn’t Donald Trump’s,” said Pearl Robinson, one of the activists on the crane. “Now is the time to resist.”
