New Hampshire sends a message; Americans are unhappy with the status quo

WASHINGTON, D.C.— Sen. Bernie Sanders’ overwhelming win in News Hampshire builds important momentum in the primary. Following his momentum-building showing in Iowa, Sanders’ victory in the Granite State demonstrates how profoundly his message resonates.

Friends of the Earth Action President Erich Pica offers the following statement:

He is showing that his ideas: politics based in justice, equity and taking back our country from the billionaire class can move people to vote. Given today’s Supreme Court decision suspending the Clean Power Plan, we are going to need the political revolution to protect our children and grandchildren from the scourge of the fossil fuel industry.
