PHOTOS: People's Climate March - Spokane

Posted By on Mon, Sep 22, 2014 at 8:45 AM

On Sunday, an estimated 150 people marched from the lower South Hill, through the eastern end of downtown Spokane and then rallied at the corner of Division and Martin Luther King Jr. Way to bring attention to the affects of climate change. The march was one of more than 2,500 actions taking place around the world during the United Nations Climate Summit in New York City, according to local organizer Brian Eister. The New York Times reports that over 300,000 people took part in the New York City march.

Eister says, "Here in Spokane, we want to speak with one voice about the things we all agree on. We all want clean air. We all want clean water. We all want to be able to fish in streams without worrying about mercury poisoning. So, we really want to set aside some of the contentiousness around this issue and focus on how much we really all agree on wanting a good clean world for our children."
