The People's Climate March — in 26 Zany Photos
The People's Climate March took place in the streets of the nation's capital on Saturday, but the protest wasn't just about climate. Protesters marched in the name of science and the environment, but they also marched for native Americans, the minimum wage, and more than anything against President Donald Trump.
1. The front of the march.
Here's what the front of the People's Climate March looked like. Streets were shut down to accommodate the protest, which started right outside the Newseum in Washington, D.C. You can also see the U.S. Capitol in the background.
2. Trojan oil drum.
Activists moved a "Trojan oil drum" on wheels toward the White House. A clever idea, but the whole "climate activists inside" really gives away the trick.
3. Make the Climate Great Again.
This Trump-style slogan appeared across the People's Climate March, with variations like "Make the Planet Great Again" and "Make the Climate Great Again." The twist on Trump's slogan got a bit tiresome, but some of them were clever.
4. The giant globe.
Here is one of a few giant globes which made an appearance throughout the People's Climate March.
5. Bill Nye quote.
Bill Nye "the science guy" (or perhaps "the vagina guy") is still considered a celebrity among climate change activists, and his image came up throughout the People's Climate March. This particular sign is rather impressive.
6. A tide is coming for Trump?
This young protester held a sign warning Trump that rising sea levels will "drown you out." His sign is a great example of the anti-Trump sentiment that pervaded the march, even when the messages were not so closely focused on the environment.
