Occupy DC visits American Petroleum Institute over climate change denial
On the 16th of April, Occupy DC’s Earth Week protests began with a visit to the American Petroleum Institute to protest their role in funding climate science denial.
The fallacy of the denial of climate change was on clear display to everyone, with temperatures reported as high as 88 degrees F around DC as protesters marched.
Upon arrival at API, Occupy DC took over the plaza in front of 1220 L street, where the API has offices on the 9th floor. As people began tricking out of the building, it soon became clear that people from the other 11 floor on the building were not always pleased with what API has been doing-in one case, with a woman even pumping her fist in time to Occupy’s chants.
