    MONTPELIER, Vt. (WCAX) Climate activists spent the night on the Statehouse lawn in Montpelier, demanding Vermont lawmakers take action on climate change. Numerous tents were set up for the "Extinction Rebellion" climate encampment. This all follows the climate week of action, where we saw protesters take to the streets in Vermont and across the globe. About 30 protesters urged lawmakers to reduce carbon emissions to net-zero by 2025 and demanded state and local governments across the country work to inform people about climate change. "We really need to pay attention to our humanity, moving forward, I think there's a real...

    Hundreds of pro-Trump protesters gathered in front of the U.S. Capitol on Thursday to show support for President Trump and demand that Congress stop the impeachment inquiry that's moving at breakneck speed through the House of Representatives. The "March for Trump" rally, organized by the pro-Trump group Women for America First, started at Freedom Plaza before marching to the Capitol Building's West Lawn. On a brisk fall day with a gusty wind that lifted dozens of pro-Trump flags held by protesters dressed in red, white and blue, speakers and attendees extolled Trump's successes and railed against impeachment depositions that have...

    Impeachment rallies are being held across the country. Organizers said they’re fed up with President Trump and the way he’s leading our country. One of the rallies was held in San Francisco Sunday afternoon off the Embarcadero. “This is the San Francisco location of a nationwide set of rallies going on,” Organizer Vara Ramakrishnan said. “There’s about 57 rallies in cities and towns and small streets all over the country. What we’re doing is we’re showing our support to congress which is headed back to DC tomorrow at a uniquely dangerous time in our country’s history.” Ramakrishnan continued. “Families, little...

    (snips) -- When President Trump holds his Target Center rally Thursday night, it will draw thousands of his supporters and opponents to the heart of the most Democratic city in the state. It’s created logistical and cost concerns for Minneapolis officials, who are asking for help from state, local and federal law enforcement agencies and expecting hundreds of thousands of dollars in extra costs for security." "Giselda Gutierrez works with the Minnesota Immigrant Rights Action Committee, which posted a “Dump Trump” protest event on Facebook that's attracted thousands of responses.

    MINNEAPOLIS — A wide spectrum of community organizations and labor unions have announced plans for protests outside of President Donald Trump's Minneapolis campaign rally Thursday. They're predicting that thousands will converge on the congested area around the Target Center starting at 5:30 p.m. that evening, in an effort to counter the message the president's supporters will be hearing indoors. "This group of people and all of the coalition have signed onto an agreement of making sure this rally and this protest is peaceful for everyone," Jaylani Hussein of the Council on American Islamic Relations, or CAIR, told reporters Monday. "We...

    The toll from four days of violent unrest in Iraq rose to 72 killed and hundreds more wounded, police and medics said on Saturday, as authorities lifted a days-long curfew in Baghdad that protesters had defied. FRANCE 24's correspondent Simona Foltyn has the details. More than 3,000 people have also been injured since the protests against chronic unemployment, poor public services and widespread corruption erupted in the capital on Tuesday, Iraqi officials said. Rights activists said police snipers shot at protesters on Friday, escalating violent tactics used by the security forces that have included live fire, tear gas and water...

    While the liberal broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) were busy fawning over the bitter ranting of radical climate teen Greta Thunberg at the United Nations on Monday, they completely ignored her cohorts in Washington, D.C. staging an illegal protest to shut down the city’s major traffic arteries, resulting in an all-day traffic nightmare in the nation’s capital. “The President's critics say he does not take the threat of climate change seriously enough if at all. So, environmental activists decided to draw attention to the issue by shutting down, and I mean completely shutting down traffic here in the nation's...

    PITTSBURGH - A fight at a gas station on Pittsburgh's North Side was recorded on video and went viral on social media. Police said multiple people are now facing criminal charges, and the videos led to a protest Saturday and Sunday. For the second straight day, dozens of people gathered outside two Pittsburgh gas stations to protest the owners. Police also were back at the Exxon gas station after they said two customers were violently attacked by an owner and employee. Officers went into the gas station as they continue their investigation, collecting evidence throughout the day. On Sunday, protesters...

    A New York judge on Friday ordered President Donald Trump to provide video testimony as part of an upcoming lawsuit brought by protesters who say they were assaulted by Trump's security guards during a 2015 protest outside of Trump Tower. Judge Doris M. Gonzalez wrote in her ruling that Trump's testimony is "indispensable" to the trial and so he must provide video testimony before the trial is set to begin Thursday. The Washington Post first reported the judge's ruling. The trial centers around a protest in September 2015 in front of Trump Tower in New York City where two protesters...

    FRANKFURT (Reuters) - Thousands of protesters marched in front of Frankfurt's IAA car show on Saturday to demand a swift end to combustion engines and a shift to environmentally friendly vehicles as Chancellor Angela Merkel's government prepares to unveil climate protection measures. Police in Frankfurt said some 15,000, including many cyclists, took part in the march. Organizers put the number at 25,000 and said that around 18,000 cyclists had descended on the city. Protesters took aim at SUVs, seen by environmentalists as a highly polluting status symbol that has no place in cities. "STOP SUV," "SUV not cool," and "We...

    CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) — The mother of a woman killed when a man rammed his car through a crowd protesting a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, is suing the convicted murderer for wrongful death. Susan Bro filed a $12 million lawsuit Aug. 30 against 22-year-old James Alex Fields Jr., who is now serving life sentences plus 419 years on numerous convictions. The Daily Progress reports Thursday that Bro said she doesn’t want Fields’ “blood money.” She just wants to make sure he can’t profit from selling the rights to his story or publishing a memoir.

    A protest is planned against the Chick-fil-A restaurant chain which is opening a location in the heart of Toronto on Friday. The U.S.-based company has made international headlines since 2012 for its anti-LGBTQ stances and promotion of conservative Christian beliefs. The company believes in “biblical definition” of marriage between a man and a woman and groups have uncovered tax filings where Chick-fil-A’s charitable arm made millions in donations to organizations opposed to gay rights. Some of the organizations that have received charitable donations from Chick-fil-A have been labelled as “hate groups” by the Southern Poverty Law Centre, an Alabama-based legal...

    Up to six protesters and one soldier have been killed in clashes across the restive West Papua and Papua provinces, although protesters and police dispute how many have died. A source at one protest in the Deiyai Regency told The Guardian on Thursday that police had fired lived rounds into a crowd of demonstrators outside the regency offices on Wednesday. Six people were killed and two seriously injured, the source, who requested anonymity fearing reprisals, said. “Shots were fired at the protesters, but people continued to sit in protest.” Al Jazeera also reported that six protesters had been killed.

    About 15 people protested on Wednesday outside of the White House, claiming that under President Donald Trump’s leadership, “systemic racism” and poverty are keeping Americans from thriving. One of the protesters made that claim with her two children by her side. “I’ve had enough of the constant racist dehumanization and targeted attacks on people of color, private citizens, and elected officials from the White House,” the woman said. “Have you?” “I’ve had enough of the systemic racism and the poverty that plagues our society and makes it impossible to thrive,” the woman said. “Have you?” “I’ve had enough of waking...

    According to Twitter and Facebook, the Chinese government ran a social media campaign aimed at protesters in Hong Kong. Both companies announced they had removed fake accounts from their platforms Monday morning. Twitter said it had removed nearly 1,000 fake accounts: This disclosure consists of 936 accounts originating from within the PeopleÂ’s Republic of China (PRC). Overall, these accounts were deliberately and specifically attempting to sow political discord in Hong Kong, including undermining the legitimacy and political positions of the protest movement on the ground. Based on our intensive investigations, we have reliable evidence to support that this is...

    Are the pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong coming to an end? No, but the airport is once again open and back in operation. If nothing else, that should diffuse some of the tension with the Chinese government. They’ve been highly critical of the impact the airport closure has had on tourism and commerce in general. That situation appears to have changed significantly in the past twelve hours, with protest leaders publishing apologies to the traveling public and moving into designated protest areas in the airport terminals. (Associated Press) Flights resumed at Hong Kong’s airport Wednesday morning after two days...

    The Chinese communist government must be feeling a sense a deja vu as Hong Kong's democracy protests gather strength. It was 30 years plus two months ago this summer that pro-democracy protesters gathered and then became a force on Tienanmen Square in Beijing. That protest saw peaceful Chinese citizens camp and sing and build a likeness of the Statue of Liberty to symbolize their quest for the freedoms we all too often take for granted: freedom of speech, freedom of assembly, freedom of religion, freedom of the press, the freedom to be left alone.The ChiComs will surely have those...

    When Hong Kong was brought to its knees on Monday, Jay Sin, bespectacled, masked and helmeted, was in high spirits and in a hurry. He had to be in many places. “We’re trying to make it more difficult for police to plan their operations,” Sin said when the Post met him at the Cross-Harbour Tunnel in Hung Hom. By then, he and his fellow protesters had walked more than 4km from Mong Kok in the summer heat, leaving a trail of destruction in their wake. On the tunnel billboard above him, his comrades had already spray-painted the catchphrase “Liberate Hong...
