DC Earth Day reportback

Video of the rally and march 1 min 25 sec

DC's Earth Day marched towards the White House after a series of events on Freedom Plaza. Heavy rains passed through, about half the participants stayed through it and continued the event. "Hundreds" reported present even after the rain.

Many groups participated, notably Extinction Rebellion DC, which is trying to sink a $5 billion Washington Gas pipeline replacement plan.

Sustainable gas (sewer/recaptured) is not widely available in the DC area, wheras replacing gas pipes with electical makes way for later solar/wind power
