Tens of thousands of people took to the streets to show President Trump they will fight his environment damaging policies in the People’s Climate March! Are you proud to see this protest going down after the EPA site removed its’ climate change page? See the powerful photos and videos from hundreds of marches across the country here!
The People’s Climate March picked up right where Earth Day’s March For Science left off on Apr. 29. Crowds took to the streets around the world to show President Donald Trump, 70, people will stand up against him. Hundred of marches sprung up across the country. His government has rolled back several environmental protection measures and Obama administration policies, according to The Washington Post. 200,000 marchers have been estimated to be protesting in Washington D.C., according to the People’s Climate March official Twitter.
“Trump’s game plan has been to relentlessly attack our communities and shock us into despair,” the Climate March event website explained. “It hasn’t worked because our people-powered movement is stronger than he is — together, the resistance stopped his attempts to overturn the Affordable Care Act and stymied his despicable Muslim ban. Together, we are going to do the same thing to his attacks on our climate, our air, and our water. Let’s get ready to march!”

On top of it all, the EPA has removed the climate change portion of its’ website and replaced it with this frightening message: “This page is being updated. Thank you for your interest in this topic. We are currently updating our website to reflect EPA’s priorities under the leadership of President Trump and Administrator [Scott] Pruitt. If you’re looking for an archived version of this page, you can find it on the January 19 snapshot.”
Besides the huge numbers marching, plenty took to Twitter in support of the protest. “#climatemarch Trump better listen up, this is just another march of many more to come until Trumps out of office!,” one user warned. One attendee at the demonstration praised the event and wrote, “I can’t begin to describe how long and lovely the #climatemarch is. It goes on essentially forever.”

March is already WAY bigger than expected. We're exceeding our permit space. Should have a crowd count soon. #climatemarch
