RALEIGH – Protesters with the Sunrise movement, a far-left organization which says it advocates for the Green New Deal, staged a protest in the driveway at the Mecklenburg County home of U.S. Sen. Thom Tillis over the weekend.

In multiple social media posts members of the organization posted pictures of themselves at his driveway carrying signs, a bullhorn, and chanting far-left slogans.

On Facebook, Tillis’ wife Susan wrote about the protest, “This is not the first time they have chosen to protest at our home but this time was definitely the longest and scariest.”

According to WUNC, the protesters started with a rally at a Huntersville park before blocking the street at Tillis’ home.
