Tens of thousands of people swelled the streets of Washington, D.C. in an ongoing push to resist President Trump’s environmental agenda. In record-breaking heat of 91 degrees, an ironic climate twist, the march began at the U.S. Capital building before making its way to and eventually surrounding the White House.
On Trump’s 100th day in office, the New York Times reported crowds chanting,“Resistance is here to stay, welcome to your 100th day.”
The crowd drew former Vice President Al Gore, business heavyweight Richard Branson, Leonardo DiCarprio and other celebrities championing the cause for Earth stewardship.
NPR reported from the ground on Saturday, where they interviewed Washington, D.C. climate marcher Emily Verna, who stated, “The [Earth’s] issues are all related. It’s community standing up for each other and standing together. For me, it’s a nice way to recharge and just remember that there is this coalition that’s big, and we’re going to move forward together and that there’s a lot of us in the fight.”
