Marchers use Trump’s 100th day to protest climate policies
Thousands of people across the U.S. are marching on President Donald Trump’s hundredth day in office to demand action on climate change.
In Washington, D.C., large crowds on Saturday made their way down Pennsylvania Avenue in sweltering heat. They planned to encircle the White House.
Organizers say about 300 other protest marches are expected around the country.
Participants in the Peoples Climate March say they’re objecting to Trump’s rollback of restrictions on mining, oil drilling and greenhouse gas emissions at coal-fired power plants, among other things.
In Augusta, Maine, protesters outside the statehouse said they wanted to draw attention to the damage climate change can cause marginalized communities.
