OCASIO-CORTEZ: “For years of denial and years of abdication of leadership and responsibility, we finally are stepping into that void, taking our future for ourselves, and we will change this country and we will change the future to be more just because a logic that we are fighting against right now, this is not just about putting solar panels on our homes. We are fighting against a logic that says poisoning and giving communities cancer is ok if an oil company can post a q1 profit, and we are here to say no more.”

(Cheers and Applause)

OCASIO-CORTEZ: “What we fighting against- what we fighting against is a logic that says it is ok to pay someone less than they need to live, and we are here to say no more.”

(Cheers and Applause)

OCASIO-CORTEZ: “What we are also fighting against is a logic that says we can extract enough off of human life and our environmental resources to the point of destroying our own humanity just to post profits. No more. We will not accept that anymore. We cannot accept that anymore.”

(Cheers and Applause)
