My name is Jamison, and I am a 6th grader.
On Sunday, September 21, 2014 I attended the People’s Climate March in New York City with my mom and brother. We stayed with my brother in Brooklyn where he has an apartment. Walking to the subway that morning we passed many people carrying signs and wearing t-shirts that were environmental or had climate-related statements on them. When we got on the subway, even more people had clothing that represented a message about the climate. We saw people with handmade felted hats and others who were carrying signs. Everyone was talking to each other.
When we arrived at the 72nd street station, it was jammed with people, and everyone looked pumped for the march. But that was just a small part of what was to come when I walked up the stairs and out into the day. There were thousands of people in the streets. The streets were jammed with people in costume, with painted flowers on their faces, with huge banners that said what or for whom they were marching. There was a huge Earth balloon. There were people with drums. There were signs everywhere. It was packed.
