10,000 Students Take to DC Streets, Calling for Action on Climate & BP Spill #PowerShift

10,000 Students Take to DC Streets, Calling for Action on Climate & BP Spill #PowerShift

important event that brings together thousands of students , community leaders, and activists from around the nation -- watching the next wave of the youth climate movement grow. There were amazing speeches from Van Jones , Bill McKibben, and Tim DeChristopher, as well as appearances by Al Gore and EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson. Today, the event culminates in real action -- thousands of those activists are now taking to the streets to confront Congress and the White House on climate inaction. They're also stopping at the US Chamber of Commerce -- the nation's biggest anti-climate lobbying force -- and BP headquarters to call out the oil giant for filing a multibillion dollar tax refund on its spill cleanup expenses. Check out some amazing pics from the front lines of the march:
