Oakland, Calif.—Four to five thousand demonstrators formed a mile-long procession through downtown Oakland and around Lake Merritt on Feb. 7 in one of the biggest marches to date drawing attention to fracking, global warming and other contributors to environmental degradation. The March for Climate Leadership demanded justice for people of color, as they are disproportionately harmed by toxic waste and sea level rise.
