Climate protest at Pelosi's office spurs arrests

Hundreds of climate activists protested inside the Cannon House Office Building at the office of incoming US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, demanding House Democratic leaders form a select committee for a Green New Deal.

The demonstration, organized by the environmental group, Sunrise Movement, led the U.S. Capitol Police to arrest dozens of protesters.

During the arrests, protesters sang, chanted and held up placards outside Pelosi's office.
