More than 150,000 people gathered in Washington on Saturday for the People’s Climate March to show solidarity and build momentum in the fight against President Trump's anti-environmental standpoints and policies. They were joined by thousands more in marches across the country.
Organizers were more than satisfied with the turnout.
“We’re blown away by the numbers,” said Paul Getsos, the Peoples Climate Movement National Coordinator, in a statement. “We like to say ‘to change everything, we need everyone’ and everyone is showing up. This movement for climate, jobs and justice will only grow stronger.”
Here are some scenes from the action:
