Hundreds of protesters marched through New York City’s financial district on Monday to call attention to what organizers say is capitalism’s contribution to climate change, snarling traffic and risking arrest as they sought to block Wall Street.
The Flood Wall Street demonstration comes on the heels of Sunday’s international day of action that brought some 310,000 people to the streets of New York City in the largest single protest ever held over climate change.

Yesterday more than 300,000 people came together to urge world leaders to take action against global climate change. Attendees included New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, Al Gore, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, Dr. Jane Goodall, Sting, Leonardo DiCaprio, Mark Ruffalo, Evangeline Lilly and Edward Norton. The NYC People’s Climate Change March was the largest climate change protest in five years.
Similar marches and events were also held in other major cities around the world, to help bring attention to global warming before the U.N. summit schedule for Tuesday. President Obama and other world leaders from government, finance and business will be at the U.N. to announce initiatives meant to move the world toward limiting global warming.
