Field called for immediate action to save the environment and she stated this to the whole crowd who were outside the US Capital in rain under an umbrella.
She stated that she cannot stay here like this sitting idle when the world is on the verge of destruction. As a fellow member of this earth, thinking if we can bring a change is not the solution to the problems we are facing. She continued, “I tried my best to learn about these problems and I wasn’t sure whether is it possible for us to solve these problems, but after learning a bit I was sure that it’s possible to solve these problems”.
In the speech, she also stated her 1979 movie “Norma Rae” which gave her the Best Actress Oscar. She described Crystal Lee Sutton, played by her in the movie, as a real savior to the mass.”If people can just think about more greener workplaces than working wage, then there will be a change”. After this, the police took her by force and she left the place with bounded hands in the air.
