Photos from Today’s Pro-Clean Energy, Anti-Keystone Tar Sands Pipeline Rally in Washington, DC
Here are a few photos (please click to enlarge) from today’s “Forward on Climate,” anti-Keystone Tar Sands Pipeline rally near the Washington Monument. A major theme of the rally was the need to move as quickly as possible away from polluting forms of energy, such as tar sands, and towards wind, solar, and other forms of clean energy. Despite the cold, there were upwards of 35,000 people from all over the country, and speakers such as 350.org President Bill McKibben (see his account of the event here), Tom Steyer (Investor and founder of the Center for the Next Generation), Chief Jacqueline Thomas (Immediate past Chief of the Saik’uz First Nation in British Columbia and co-founder Yinka Dene Alliance), and Maria T. Cardona (Latinovations Founder, Dewey Square Group Principal). Also see the Forward on Climate press release, and click here for more photos from the event.
