Climate Activists Block Traffic In Washington D.C.

Activists seeking to pressure U.S. politicians to fight climate change blocked traffic in the U.S. capital on Monday.

The rally focused on drawing attention to a U.N.

Climate Summit that will be attended by leaders from about 60 countries.

According to Reuters, those attending the summit will include leaders of small island states most at risk from climate change.

Activists targeted heavily traveled areas, including Farragut Square, Columbus Circle, and Folger Park on Capitol Hill.

The protest, called Shut Down DC, was supported by about two dozen advocacy and change groups.
