Hundreds of thousands of people from all walks of life took to the streets of Manhattan in what organizers are calling the largest climate change protest in history. Organizers also said the march was the largest social justice march in New York City in over a decade.
March organizers expected over 100,000 people, but that turned out to be a conservative guess. The initial estimate is 310,000. It has been six hours since the march began, and people are still streaming down 42nd Street, miles from where the march began.
