Michelle Wu marched with climate group stopping traffic in 2019 – Boston News, Weather, Sports

BOSTON (WHDH) — Boston Mayor Michelle Wu tweeted In 2019, while a city council member, she marched with Extinction Rebellion Boston, the group that stopped traffic Wednesday morning to protest climate change.

When asked about her recent protest, Wu declined to say if she supports her tactics. She said she heard the urgency of the protesters but also places great importance on public safety.

Demonstrators marched near South Train Station and Post Office Square on Wednesday. At least five people were arrested after blocking roads, which organizers say is one of the only ways to get people’s attention.

When Wu tweeted about her participation in the protests in 2019, she wrote, “Taking over the bridge on Congress Street,” and tagged the organization.

This time, when 7NEWS asked Wu more than once about her reaction to the protest, she didn’t say either way if she supported the effort.

Wu spoke to her children about the threat of climate change.

“Most days it can be really frustrating to look out at the world and see the headlines that are coming in, so I know and deeply share the frustration and urgency faced by the people we work alongside every day to do our part in the city government and I know we will continue to feel that responsibility,” she said.

When asked whether the arrested protesters should be prosecuted, Wu said she was unfamiliar with the charges and that the trial had to go ahead.
