Photoset: Reclaiming Earth Day in New York City

Tuesday kicked off the Global Climate Convergence with rallies and direct actions aimed at reclaiming Earth Day from corporate greenwashers and reclaiming Earth from pollutors. Here’s a glimpse of how the day played out in New York City where demonstrators marched on the Stock Exchange. Many carried plants instead of placards as a small reminder of what is at risk given Wall Street’s investments in fossil fuels; our life sustaining planet. In the spirit of the convergence, which is seeking to bridge workers power and ecological power in the ten day stretch between Earth Day and May Day, the Peoples Puppets of Occupy Wall Street provided a traditional May pole with an array of demands strung upon its crown, signifying that all our grievances are connected. Photo journalist Stacy Lanyon captured these images.
