Noozhawk and Edhat articles by Robert Bernstein, and tons of photos by him too! Thanks Robert!

Thanks for the successful march today! We had over 200 folks come out to draw the line on dirty energy. Demonstrators carried a 90′ pipeline down State Street to the beach where we documented our march with a photo. The photos are now on their way to the 350.org website and will be sent to President Obama. Thank You Everyone!!!

Update: Photo from the front page of 350.org:
