Waco: Climate protesters gather outside Exxon Mobil facility
The Waco Friends of Peace-Climate group staged a protest Friday afternoon outside an Exxon Mobil facility on Pecan Lane as part of what was billed as a “global climate strike” ahead of a United Nations climate summit in New York that led to large protests around the world.
“Exxon maybe surprised to find activists in Waco, Texas are calling them out on our climate and what they are doing to our future," says organizer Alan Northcutt.
Northcutt along with others, gathered around the outside of the building entrance, bringing homemade signs that supported green energy.
The protesters say they are trying to send a message to Exxon that the planet needs to stop using fossil fuels and begin using renewable resources.
Some of the members from the group plan to rally again next Friday at Heritage Square, as they look to end what they are calling a climate crisis.
