People's Climate March - New York City




I attended the Peoples Climate March in New York City on September 21, 2014 travelling with over 2000 people from Vermont on more than 17 buses. There were more than 400,000 people at the March and as you can see from the photos, the marchers were  very diverse bunch of folks. The Vermont contingent was slotted to start the march at the end of the parade which formed along Central Park. It took over 3 hours for them to cross the starting point, that how huge this march was. Please check out 350.org for more information, plus check out vimeo for a great pre-march video.
Could this be the turning point that we all need? Check out the rest of my photos here:
