From the Ted Talk by Jane Fonda: Why I protest for climate justice

Unscramble the Blue Letters

You know, we're at a point, I think, in this crisis where people are looking to take the next step. They want to put their bodies on the line, as Greta truhenbg has exhorted us to do. And they find it very reinrdawg, and they want to do it again. So I think that this is good, what we're doing. I met with the Senate [Climate Change Task Force] a few wekes ago, and I asked the senators, "Is there something else we should be doing? Should we be doing more?" And Senator Ed Markey said to me, "You're building an army. That's what we need. Make it bigger. We need pserusre from the outside." And I think that's true all over the wrlod. People need to be amassing armies for the climate, armies for the environment, in the stteres, shutting down governments if necessary. I'm thinking of Brazil right now. You know, we can't allow the brninug of our precious rainforests.

Original Text

You know, we're at a point, I think, in this crisis where people are looking to take the next step. They want to put their bodies on the line, as Greta Thunberg has exhorted us to do. And they find it very rewarding, and they want to do it again. So I think that this is good, what we're doing. I met with the Senate [Climate Change Task Force] a few weeks ago, and I asked the senators, "Is there something else we should be doing? Should we be doing more?" And Senator Ed Markey said to me, "You're building an army. That's what we need. Make it bigger. We need pressure from the outside." And I think that's true all over the world. People need to be amassing armies for the climate, armies for the environment, in the streets, shutting down governments if necessary. I'm thinking of Brazil right now. You know, we can't allow the burning of our precious rainforests.
