5:35 am
is the sunrise movement. in space of just 2 years, this group of activists, most of them are under 30, has grown 210-0000 members, are not with their strategy is clear to halts. climate change by working within the system and lobbying politicians into pushing through legislative and economic reform. i've come to boston to find out how the sunrise movement has become a force to be reckoned with in us. politics. leading the charge is 26 year olds, varsity for cash. while studying in massachusetts, she joined the university's fossil fuel divestment campaign before co founding sunrise in 2015. so you've been with the sunrise movement from the very beginning. what made you started? a number of us young people, all under the age of 30,
5:36 am
we're seeing that the hurricanes were getting bigger, the fires, seasons were getting longer, the floods were getting bigger. but there wasn't a movement big enough for young people to ensure that we had a habitable planet for our future generations to talk more about why you feel you need to act right now. so scientists are telling us right now that we have just 12 years to make unprecedented changes to transform every part of our economy and our society to de carbonized, to get off fossil fuels, to invest in renewables. and to protect life and human civilization on this planet as we know it. and yet our politicians have not done what's necessary. they have not built and garner the political will, that we need and people are dying as a result. at the heart of the sunrise, strategy is the green new deal with a radical environmental change policy. the idea of her, which was conceived in the us in the 1960s. the deal's goal is to completely
5:37 am
transform the u. s. economy by ending its dependency on fossil fuels investing as jed and renewable energy and creating jobs in the process. the greener deal is a massive economic mobilization at a scale that we have not seen in this country since world war 2. that is an effort to stock climate change and create millions of good jobs. ah, i'm curious to find out what the real political change is possible with people power alone, particularly by those so young i've come to the sunrise, boston hub. there are 204 hubs like this spread across the nation. here, every month, 60 sunrise members gather to share experiences, get behind the cause. welcome to our april 2nd, how do i get in doing
5:38 am
a to hubs? get people of all backgrounds, an opportunity to come together and voice, their concerns. every single person who decided to come to the senior today is a part of this movement as a part of this greater moment in history. these are young people need to be heard. it's pretty tough for tmj. mm hm. and they want to take positive steps to fix the world. we live in a little direction with the hub solution to break groups where they plan their next actions. what do we think will actually make high schoolers, unless we just post, like
5:39 am
a green background with the words like brand new to you and put a link in our bio or something? i don't interrupt. so feel free to norma. dear friends, in high school care about climate change. ally of people i know i know that climate change is an issue there. that's not to be a debate, is how willingly are you able to get in both? i think a lot of young people don't feel like they have the power all to make any change if we actually come together. we totally van geem so many things. i thought i was coming into a meeting and it's really a lot more than that. there is energy. they're engaged, you feel the sense of urgency is not a reality for them. this is the future and you can feel that but for all their passion, how effective a sunrise actually been marsh these invited me to her home to show the impact sunrise is had in the top tiers of power. so this was from
5:40 am
our 1st action apps, nancy pelosi office in washington dc. and as you can see, there's literally hundreds of young people lining up the halls and they're carrying science that they what is your plan? our ultimate goal was to share our vision of what the green new deal is all about looking at this or seems to be a sort of plan of action, right? there's a, there's a style that sunrise is using to achieve your goals. we're really trying to embody the fact that we are young people fighting for our future. and we want it to be joyous. and we want it to be raucous, and we want it to be serious, and we want it to be determined and resolved nunnery say that older generations, chronic and activity on environmental issues is an excuse of, from the united states will see all implementation of the nog. biding
5:41 am
paris accord the current republic. government refuses to even acknowledge. there is a problem. so sunrise, believe they must act to make change happen and is alive or that we're going to talk to right now. and they are being heard. green generation has risen on a growing number of democrats. senators now support the green new deal. and sunrise have found influential political allies in socially conscious representatives like alexandria castillo cortez. this is bright before representative because in cortez unprecedentedly joined us on her 1st day of orientation as a new congress woman. to say that we have nancy pelosi in the democratic parties back in pushing for the most progressive and ambitious energy agenda. this country has ever seen with back with her,
5:42 am
but firm opposition to the green new deal remains. on the 26th of march, 2019, a draft of the deal was unanimously rejected by the republican controlled senate. how did you feel when the resolution got voted down in the senate? the goal of the resolution is for it to be a statement of values to chart a blueprint to lay out the projects of what would be included with in the green new deal. we need an attitude shifts, we need to put into gear and into momentum, these big ideas so that we can write the policy over the next year and get these things to pass me. sunrise aim to create momentum further caused by directly lobbying political leaders. do it. i did sean and his team planned to doorstep andrea campbell, the president of boston city council. the gulf states get an assignment, no fossil fuel money watch got it. i later down the road, we're working with her and i several other counselors to craft
5:43 am
a resolution for agree new deal that's going to pass the city council chalet, missouri. the 1st step for the group is to encourage politicians to sign a pledge, promising that they will refuse money from fossil fuel companies who want them to act in their interest. over $1400.00 politicians have signed so far. as we approached the council president's office, i'm struck by this group's confidence. they walk straight in jail to meet you. a good, nice to me. you were pumped. we're here to ask you if you could side the know fossil fuel money pledge? absolutely, i mean, i will say before i even you know, sign this. thank you for your advocacy and your work. the stuff doesn't happen by accident. if people aren't showing up, so happy to participate, happy to do this. i just want to say thank you. so it's not just her movement, whether confronting a lot of hostility,
5:44 am
they're actually getting support and encouragement and more freely from politicians . i think we lead by example, and i know i do. and so by saying, let's do this. signing on and committing. we hoped that others would follow our lead. it's impressive to see these young people having genuine success in the halls of power. having meetings like this is really rushing because it shows that we do have allies out there that we can't be working with in the system to, to promote shades that we want to see the world job. he had the sunrise movement is clearly influential and it's getting results where it matters most. their ultimate goal is to convince the majority of congressmen and women to sponsor in the green new deal. so when the next government is elected in 2020, the bill has the weight of support to make it policy. the sunrise event is asking for a lot and they're asking for quickly, critic say they're too idealistic for, for a problem as massive as climate change. we do need ambitious radical solutions now
5:45 am
. ah, today's environmental site uprisings of the post as proof, it's incredible. social change really is possible. in 90 no 3 in britain, the suffragettes campaigned for women to have the rights to vote with a rallying cry of deeds, not words they often resort to extreme acts at at some race course. emily davidson even gave her life for the cause. these tactics worked in 1928 women, one equal voting rights in britain 35 years later in america, the civil rights movement. so to end racial segregation, martin luther king lex, the peaceful protests. non problem is the most potent grab one available. hoover nicole under the bed for freedom in human business by $968.00 after

a decade of campaigning, african americans to secure legal rights to equal employment voting and housing. by analyzing passive resistance movements, political scientist erica chenoweth identified a threshold for success. a 3 and a half percent, the population mobilized against the establishment. social change will happen with force. many of us need to change the way we treat out. there is one group which is taking things to the next level. in october 2018, a group of activists and good by political inaction on climate change declared themselves to be an open defiance of the u. k. government. they hold themselves extinction, rebellion or exile for sure. i'm doing the right amount is in place. they, they,
5:47 am
what, outside the system, engaging in bold, non violent acts of civil disobedience. their strategy is to create headline grabbing protest designed to maximize public exposure. they believe this will gain them a mass following and force real change. in just 6 months, they have already expanded into 15 countries to spread across full continent. i met that london headquarters on the day of one of their most extreme actions. yet in a protest day, a cooling blood of all children exile plant, still 500 liters of fake blood on downing street office, an residence of british prime minister hiker. and i live in history. nice me one of the ex i was co founders is clare tiro, when the idea of the blood of our children were already suffering

5:50 am
which i think is the main prizes to achieve structural political change in the form of the citizens assembly, ordinary people who are educated on the facts and then come together to talk about what might be the best route forward. do you think, is it cheaper? well, i think it's necessary. mm hm. x i want to become impossible to ignore. so it's members of planning, the biggest protest yet they hope to bring london to a standstill with a 2 week human blockade of the city streets at exiles h key. i'm missing one of the chief coordinators of the shut down larch, maxie, what we're doing for with the rebellion is having it go up, causing the level of disruption that could bring about you know, the government to me. i demolish. do you think that you're at risk of almost alienation yourself by crossing over into that legal category?

5:53 am
extinction rebellions target is the government. but the people who will be hit hardest to day or the every day commuters as a tried to get to work. there's potential then that all of this can be disrupted and people might be able to get to where they go. and because of the actions that say, hey, how is that justified? we're really sorry. we don't really want to do this, but we also don't want to pass on a livable planet. the next generation we arrive at oxford. zach has an 8 30 am and only a handful of activists are here. we quickly get a taste of where public favour might lie. i'm not quite sure how the group succeed in blocking the very heart of london was the plan here because at the moment, right, isn't all spies. there's nothing on it. so what's gonna happen?
