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:

Thousands of people gathered across the country to march in protest of President Donald Trump's environmental policies, which have included rolling back restrictions on mining, oil drilling and greenhouse gas emissions at coal-fired power plants. The demonstrators sat down for 100 seconds to mark President Trump's first 100 days in office.
