Greenpeace Responds to President-elect Donald Trump

  The progressive movement must work harder than ever

WASHINGTON - In response to Donald Trump winning the presidency of the United States, Greenpeace USA Executive Director Annie Leonard said,

“Our hearts go out today to the millions of people who voted against bigotry and hate and now have to accept the fact that the man who ridiculed and threatened them for months is the President-elect of the United States. Fear may have won this election, but bravery, hope and perseverance will overcome.

“Greenpeace and millions of people around the world have all the power we need to combat climate change and create a just world for everyone. Let’s use this moment to reenergize the fight for the climate and the fight for human rights around the world.”
