Fifty people of all ages stood for two hours in the pouring rain on Medina Public Square today as part of the nationwide People's Climate March to voice their concerns about global climate change and the damage that it is already causing the environment. Although many were residents of Medina County, others traveled from Mansfield, Westlake and Euclid to be a part of this "Sister March".
Many of those in attendance also mentioned their concerns about the NEXUS Pipeline and compressor station and how that "corporate industry" will affect the health, safety and environment of Medina County residents and other residents throughout Ohio.
