2019 Climate Strike Rally—Raleigh, NC
Shot at a climate rally in Raleigh North Carolina, this hypersonic montage of people and activities is set to a thrashing soundtrack.
The video features William Barber III, Co-chair of the Ecological Devastation Committee for the NC Poor People’s Campaign, who declares that diverse communities must stand together to resolve the climate crisis: “Do not let them tell you this is not an intersectional, interracial, powerful national movement…The only way forward is forward together.”
To prevent climate catastrophe our only hope is for all progressive campaigns to rise in solidarity and build an inclusive, mass movement of movements.

Faisal Khan Rails Against Murder of Suleimani
Speaking a few days after the murder of Iran’s Maj. Gen. Qassim Suleimani by a US drone strike, an angry Faisal Khan declares the president had ulterior motives for the attack: “This is a classic strategy game by Donald Trump to divert from his own political problems and impeachment.”
Khan, founder of the Carolina Peace Center, was speaking at a protest in Raleigh, NC. The event was organized by “Tuesdays with Tillis,” an Indivisible group that has met for 154 straight weeks in front of the downtown Federal Building. The protests target the policy positions of Senator Thom Tillis and his support for President Trump.
Khan: “It’s unacceptable for Thom Tillis, as a senator of the United States, to stay silent and complacent.”
