Must-See Tweets From the People’s Climate March

The People’s Climate March hit the streets of Washington, D.C., Saturday (April 29).

At least 150,000 people, and perhaps up to 200,000, are estimated to have marched in direct protest of the Trump administration’s rollback of environmental policy and climate skepticism. Even the city’s record-breaking temperature—a 91-degree Fahrenheit high and a 69-degree low—didn’t stop them.

Around the country (and world), children, celebrities and organizers gathered to showcase their resistance-focused art in support of a healthier environment, more stable climate and a sustainable labor force.

The march led up to a final D.C. action today (May 1) for May Day, a day of action for labor rights organizers. Today is also a national day of action for immigrants.
