SOMERVILLE, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — Climate activists let Gov. Healey know exactly how they felt on Thursday morning.

Healey was in the middle of a “fireside chat” with the CEO of Greentown Labs when two activists rushed the stage. They want the Healey administration to stop any new fossil fuel infrastructure projects in the state.

The two Extinction Rebellion activists held a banner that read “Commonwealth failing to address climate crisis.” Both activists were quickly escorted off the stage, while other members held a poster against the window with the same message.

The activists also chanted “no new fossil fuel infrastructure” during the Climatetech Summit. Healey did not react to the protest, speaking louder while the activists were escorted away.
