Several environmental activists suspended from the Fred Hartman Bridge in Houston on Thursday morning to contest the use of fossil fuels and to discipline Democratic presidential candidates preparing for controversy to preserve responsible trade.
Greenpeace USA, a non-governmental environmental organization, acknowledged in a tweet that they were demonstrating on the bridge to "confront" President Donald Trump and the "oil trade".
A community shared video shows a variety of protesters using colored bands to hang on the bridge over the water.
Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez acknowledged that the division is monitoring the demonstration. According to NBC Affiliate KPRC in Houston no less than a dozen protesters were anxious and the community acknowledged that they intend to continue the bridge for 24 hours.
The demo comes hours earlier than the Democratic 2020's third presidential keynote debate Thursday night at Texas Southern College.
"We discipline every candidate on stage tonight to promise to preserve the responsible fossil fuel trade by the time they become president," the community wrote, including the hashtag "PeopleVsOil."
