Protesters try to disrupt a former Michigan Governor’s appearance at a climate change discussion
An appearance at a discussion on climate change was met with protesters for former Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm.
A group of protesters tried to disrupt U.S. Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm's appearance in a Detroit suburb to discuss climate change. The Detroit Free Press reports that Granholm, a former Michigan governor, appeared at a climate change discussion hosted by the newspaper on Monday at a hotel in Birmingham.
Members of the Climate Defiance group tried to make their way into the event, with several members checking into the hotel using fake names. Some were seen banging on doors before security removed them and later about 20 protesters pounded on the window of the room where the discussion was being held.
Granholm said she sympathizes with the protesters and understands they want change.
