Protesters have taken to Battery Park in New York City today after yesterday’s People’s Climate March. Today’s protest, Flood Wall Street, attempts to bring attention to the fact that our economic system has a damaging relationship with the environment.

“Runaway climate change and extreme weather events, such as the extreme flooding that we saw here in New York City with Hurricane Sandy, are fueled by the fossil fuel industry,” said Flood Wall Street organizer Michael Prezo. “We are flooding Wall Street because we know that there’s no greater cause of runaway climate change than an economic system that puts profit before people – and before the planet.”
