No security means they have tacit agreement to squat the office while Peolsi is out of town.

A hunger strike is something you do until you die. eg Bobby Sands MP in UK.

Not eating for a few days is called FASTING. It’s a good practice, I recommend it. However it is not a reason for anyone else to bend to your demands.

These pretentious bourgeois eco-loons are a dishonour to anyone who every really had the commitment to go on hunger strike. Totally shameful.

Of course Pelosi’s office is complicit , otherwise they would have been removed immediately. Try invading some prominent representatives office and see how long you last.

If they think they need “sodium supplements” on the first day of fasting they should talk to someone who has actually done it.

I tried searching for some update on this and can’t find any reports fresher than 3days ago when the coordinated PR burst started. Is this “global hunger strike” even existing at this point. Or was it just for one day?

Nine protesters were arrested Thursday after storming the office of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) to demand that she meet with them about climate change.

Remember when Pelosi said “…if you want to be creative and be a musician or whatever, you can leave your work, focus on your talent, your skill, your passion, your aspirations because you will have health care.”?

This is what you get with a society filled with people who don’t have to work and can’t find anything better to do with their time.

Turn ON the lights.

Let everyone see what life is like when policy makers who are also self-described champions of CAGW have their offices stormed by true believers justifiably accusing them of hypocrisy.

All great suggestions on top of Bryans!

Don’t forget to lock the bathrooms too.
And shut off the water in the basement to the building.
XR has promised vandalism as part of their puerile attention grabbing tantrums; the security guards have got to protect the building.

Schiffty would be so disappointed if he found someone else’s water in his office. No one would notice his tears.

Also warn the local pizza parlors, sandwich shops, food trucks and food stores that aiding terrorism is an accessory to the crime.

It would help if the Washington Mall guards shut off the nearby street lights too. We wouldn’t want to rob XR of any valuable sleep because it’s to bright.

Then remind XR, those conditions is what they are demanding of the rest of us.

From the video it looks like they stayed all of a bout an hour, drank some salt water to stay “hydrated,” and then left when they got bored and hungry.

Usually, drinking salt water has a laxative effect and also the body needs to eliminate the salt via urination in order to maintain electrolytic balance. It’s difficult to understand what they were thinking.

They probably saw it Utube. They obviously know nothing about fasting.

I can’t find any info so far on even the second day of “occupying ” her office and not eating. They probably went for a pizza. To hell with the planet, I haven’t eaten for near six hours, now.

Fasting rejuvenates the body. Get past the first three days & Ghrelin cycles reduce, making it easier to continue the fast. Dr Jason Fung is a Canadian nephrologist. He has pioneered the use of therapeutic fasting regimens for weight loss and type 2 diabetes control with great success. Follow his advice on YouTube. It continues to work for me, although I do not have Type ll Diabetes. Five days of fasting per month keeps the doctor at bay.

Given these are extinction Rebellion I am sure their “Hunger Strike” is based on The CBC Chief Teresa Spence Model Hunger strike.
Where over 6 weeks CBC assured us,this woman was on a hunger strike..as she gained weight.
A quote by the Oatmeal Savage summed it up.
“CBC told us a woman was on a hunger strike,Ezra(Now Rebel TV) counted her chins”.
But I do like the idea of just locking the doors for a few weeks,turning off the heat and lights and giving these posers what they demand for us.
How could they object,that would not be cruel and unusual punishment when they are demanding such conditions?
Or are those conditions only for the rest of us?

The cure for global warming is much worse than anything that might be caused by it. It’s really important that the extremists get a voice. The public needs to know what’s being demanded of them.

The worst case is if the the public is lulled into believing that they can fight CAGW and not affect their standard of living.

ER videos and interviews give the impression that these folk are a little unsure what they are supposed to be about. Their weirdly calm, ‘reasonable’ demeanor and empty phraseology has a zombie/ opioid aspect. Compare the Gilêts Jaunes anger or Black Lives Matter folk.

I would feel perfectly safe but terminally bored if I went to discuss whatever the issues might be with these polite quiet ineffectual people. They seem to have recognized this fecklessness in themselves by glomming onto the climate meme. Climate wasn’t their original schtick.

All this is put forth in the name of doing something useful, but I guess this is how terminal idiots party.

They can do it for a few hours for fun, just to feel good about something, but then they go home to their many civilized comforts to eat a hardy meal, enjoy the heat and safety of their privileged surroundings, as they rest up and get bored again to stage the next social-justice … “protest” or … “hunger strike” … or other thing that they choose to defile a word meaning to describe.

Drinking a half teaspoon of “salt” in a champagne glass of water – seriously? How did that taste? Judging by the lack of reaction, I don’t think it was salt.

These people are obviously sincere and willing to exert a serious effort towards what they think is a just cause.
Since we are having a climate optimum, not a crisis, they are being completely counterproductive because they were misled by their climate religion high priests.

Too bad. There are hundreds of worthy causes to help the less fortunate in this world that they could be connected authentically to, where their efforts would be productive and make the world a better place.

That’s the saddest thing about the fake climate crisis. Wasted resources on a non problem with solutions that would all make the human condition on our planet worse, while doing zero to affect the weather and climate……which has been the best in the last 1,000 years on this greening planet.

How long can civilized people coexist peacefully with increasingly radical and increasingly violent behavior?

At least in the States, the police aren’t on the side of the nut jobs as much as it appears they are in Britain. Police cover up of thousands of gang rapes by muslim immigrants is incredibly evil. (for articles, search on Duck Duck Go…Google won’t work). Have the Brits become willing to sacrifice their daughters to the Leftist madness? Back in the 1960’s these raping criminals would have often “come up missing”. Today they come up PROTECTED !!

Unbelievable madness.

To go much LOWER and DEGENERATE would require a repeat of early Nazi Germany. Seriously. No exaggeration. Societies that tolerate the gang rape of their young girls by the thousands are way closer than is comfortable to a society willing to perform a few thousand…then million “CLEANSING” executions.

Google appears to be complicit in the cover up.

Google “gang rape England” then do the same search on DUCK DUCK GO. The difference in the search results is alarming.
