This morning, 1000s of people flooded Wall Street (with youth showing up strong!), creating a human sea to match the rising waters that Wall Street funds with their massive investments in fossil fuel industry.
We showed up at #FloodWallStreet, expressing opposition to tar sands exploitation in Minnesota, demanding justice and safety from rising waters in the Rockaways of New York, and visioning for a just transition to clean energy in the Southeast -- and we recognize that these fights are all united through the capitalist, oppressive system that dominates our society.
As I write this, people are still everywhere in the financial district after 5+ hours of occupying several blocks of Wall Street. Check out a few of the amazing photos and visit floodwallstreet.net for more!
And we’re off! Start of our trek from Battery Park to Wall Street. Photo by Flood Wall Street / Flickr.
