Climate activists march on Brooklyn Bridge on Oct 28.

Superstorm commemorated

Activists from the DC 37 Climate Justice Committee joined in the commemoration of the 5th anniversary of Superstorm Sandy on Oct. 28. The activists gathered Saturday morning at Cadman Plaza in Brooklyn and marched over the Brooklyn Bridge into Manhattan for a rally at Alfred E. Smith Houses.

Sandy caused more than $70 billion in damage and destroyed homes in Staten Island, Breezy Point and the Rockaways in Queens, Brooklyn and Lower Manhattan.

Jon Forster, of the Climate Justice Committee, led a group of DC 37 activists over the bridge at the 5th anniversary commemoration.

“We have to remember and honor those lives lost five years ago,” said Forster. “And remember and honor the heroism of our city workers.”
