Scenes from a Hollywood climate protest

Climate activists all around the country organized a “national day of action” in the memory of Joye Braun, a Lakota activist who erected the first structure at Standing Rock Sioux Reservation to protest the Keystone XL pipeline.

Sim Bilal, an activist from The Climate Center, led the protest wearing a green jacket and carrying a large loudspeaker. The goal of the afternoon was to deliver this letter about the climate crisis to the Hollywood branches of Wells Fargo and Bank of America.

When he yelled, “No more coal, no more oil,” into the loudspeaker, the protesters walking behind him yelled back, “Keep the carbon in our soil.”
