People's Climate March; May Day turns violent


Although I got to the March for Science, I didn’t get to the Climate Protest 2017 Saturday or to the May Day demonstrations today because I was busy with immigration (a Saturday event in Maryland, covered on Wordpress, here  ).

Here is WJLA’s coverage of May Day in Washington DC, link. It also focused on Trump’s immigration policies, which keep more than one reporter busy.

There are reports of serious violence at a May Day protest in Portland OR now, on CNN.  Police canceled the march after anarchists reported stormed the event, in a manner reminiscent of the violence in Berkeley over the appearance of Milo Yiannopoulos. KGW in Portland reports here.

The National LGBTQ Task Force reports on May Day here.



People's Climate covers its own event Saturday here.
