On the 26th of January, the Extinction Rebellion marched a casket from Pershing Park to the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History to memorialize the many species which have been made extinct by human activity. At the conclusion of a funeral service for human-extincted species at the musuem, activsts marched off and blocked the intersection of 9th st (395 entrance) and Constitution Ave. No arrests resulted.
