People’s Climate March in D.C. draws massive crowd (video)


Thousands of demonstrators descend upon Washington on Saturday for the latest in a series of anti-Trump protests denouncing the new administration’s rollback of Obama’s climate change initiatives.

The People’s Climate March conveniently coincides with President Trump celebrating his first 100 days in the White House, in an organized effort to create a “massive show of resistance” on a landmark day, according to the People’s Climate Movement website.

Marchers are further fueled by an action taken by the Environmental Protection Agency late Friday when the agency announced plans to overhaul of its website and remove a page previously devoted to climate change.

Several signs carried by demonstrators who gathered on the National Mall warned of doom and gloom, dire environmental concerns, and impending planetary destruction.

The march kicked off at 12:30 p.m. EST in front of the U.S. Capitol building and will continue up Pennsylvania Avenue towards the White House, where protestors will “make a loud sound demanding climate justice and good jobs that will drown out all of the climate-denying nonsense that has been coming out of this Administration,” said the website.

In addition to the massive turnout in D.C., which has reportedly exceeded 150,000 marchers as of Saturday afternoon, more than 375 sister marches are happening worldwide.
