People's Climate March, Washington DC, 2017

 Photos from the People's Climate March in DC this weekend. 
 Took the bus up with not very many people from Athens (24), but more people that I see riding bike instead of driving any day of the week.
 I made this banner out of part of my plastic drop cloth and me tent poles. Rode my bike of course!!!! Wore my mask so that I didn't have to put sunscreen on my face It was in the mid 90's (33 degrees C) and sweat makes sun screen run into my eyes!
It says:
HOPE     RIDE BIKE     GO VEGAN     GO SOLAR    COMPOST     ZERO WASTE   SPEAK OUT   
 This is what we did for our anniversary!
 ​I met this awesome gal named Hannah who biked he 60 miles from Philly to DC. I loved her sign "Pedal Power! Basic Cycology!"
The other sign I saw that I really liked said "Whose Under Your Carbon Footprint?"
 ​We stayed near these Peruvian Indigenous Power Dancers. They were burning cups filled with Palo Santo. The smell was so thick in the air. It felt great.

Here's a few of about 250,000 people who passed by the Trump Hotel and made a lot of angry noise. Some people sat down and blocked the entrance.
The news team of Democracy Now! was on the streets covering the march all day. I am a monthly donor. You can watch the daily show @ www.democracynow.org . Amy Goodman, the host is coming to speak in Atlanta on Thursday and Joel & I are gonna go.
