Protesters Demanding Democratic Climate Debates Sent Food by Sanders and Inslee Campaigns

Demonstrators who gathered outside the Democratic National Headquarters on June 25 remained there into the morning of June 26, as part of their campaign to have the Democratic National Convention host a presidential debate on climate change.

The group were buoyed by messages from candidates Bernie Sanders and Jay Inslee, who sent them pizza and cookies respectively. Inslee filmed a video encouraging the demonstrators to “keep up the pressure on the DNC”.
