A group of protesters with the Sunrise Movement interrupted the Democratic National Committee’s (DNC) summer meeting in Chicago on Thursday over the DNC’s decision to reverse its ban on donations from fossil fuel companies.

“We the people are ready to lead because our leaders are making it hard to breathe. They care for oil, they care for greed. Reject fossil fuel money, dare to lead,” the protestors sang while holding up a sign that read “Our Time To Rise.”

The protesters were eventually escorted out of the DNC Resolutions Committee hearing by security to smattering of applause.

The same group of protesters showed up at the DNC’s headquarters in Washington, D.C. earlier this month demanding that the DNC reinstate its ban on donations from fossil fuel companies.
