Climate protest draws large crowd
By Matt Owens February 17, 2013
Washington D.C. - A large crowd, possibly 30,000 people strong are marching in Washington D.C. today to protest climate change the keystone pipeline. Many climate scientists have said that using the Canadian tar sands oil - which the Keystone Pipeline would transport through the U.S. for international export - will equal "GAME OVER" for our climate.
Drums of all kinds including a large one carried by several people (just barely visible through the crowd in photo above) and small brass bands played as the protesters marched.
350.org, the Sierra Club, and countless other organizations helped organize and bring protesters to D.C. today.
Below are videos from just a few hours ago. For more photos, click here to see the Fairfax Climate Watch "signs of change image gallery.
Great images! Thank you.
