Senator Joe Manchin Confronted by Climate Protesters in Washington

US Demoncratic Senator Joe Manchin was confronted by climate protesters in Washington on Thursday, November 4.

This footage, filmed by the group Resist Line 3, shows demonstrators chanting “we want to live!” as Manchin walks towards a garage.

An event page for the protest, organised by a climate activist group, takes aim at Manchin, saying “if Senator Joe Manchin wasn’t bankrolled by fossil fuel companies, the reconciliation package would be passed and signed into law—so we’re bringing our fire and fight to his doorstep”.

Manchin refused to back a spending package that would include billions of dollars in climate and energy investment.
