On the 25th of February, hundreds of activists from the Sunrise Movement occupied Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's office. They were protesting his efforts to scuttle the Green New Deal with a quick (presumably NO) vote before it can even be fully written.

Protesters called him out for "lining your pockets while we die in floods." Over 40 of them were arrested after refusing orders to roll up their signs and leave.
