Daryl Hannah is handcuffed and arrested during the Keystone XL Pipeline Protest at Lafayette Park in Washington on Wednesday.
THE BIGGEST THREAT TO MEANINGFUL CLIMATE REFORM IS OUR SILENT MEDIA!
If no network allows their anchors to cover Climate Change, how can the public know how outraged they should be?
(I’m telling you, if you want the REAL NEWS, tune in to Democracy Now with Amy Goodman on LinkTV — either online or on your TV.)
MSNBC calls itself “forward” thinking? Yet, did you hear A WORD about the 48 arrests at the White House yesterday, anywhere on their network? Among those arrested were Daryl Hannah, Bill McKibben of 350.org, Robert Kennedy, Jr., and The Sierra Club’s Executive Director, Michael Brune.
This non-coverage is BULLSHIT…and, like it or not, nature won’t WAIT for our politicians to be courageous enough to stand up against Big Oil! The Arctic is melting whether we are made aware of it or not.
Here’s what you didn’t see covered by our national media, not even on Cable News:
“Dozens, Including Sierra Club Director, Arrested At White House Keystone Protest:
“Sierra Club’s Executive Director Michael Brune says it’s so important that his group decided for the first time in its 120 year history to participate in civil disobedience.
“‘What we need right now is the president to really seize this moment on Climate change,’ he said.”
