Climate change activists return to D.C. streets

It was the second time this week that activists seeking to pressure U.S. politicians to enact environmental policies blocked major traffic hubs in the U.S. capital.

Hundreds of protesters marched, chanted and even danced in downtown streets as Washington metropolitan police blocked traffic.

The protest, called "Shut Down DC", was backed by about two dozen groups, including the Metro D.C.

Chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America, Extinction Rebellion D.C.

And Black Lives Matter D.C.
