Today’s Occupy EPA and NOW DC rally went off with a bang!
An eclectic crowd of whistleblower supporters, environmental protectors, and Occupy supporters marched today starting from Franklin Square Park and ending at the EPA offices. Dr. Marsha Coleman-Adebayo, a member of the National Whistleblowers Center Board of Directors, enthusiastically led the rally.
Following Dr. Coleman-Adebayo’s lead, the rally attendees blew whistles in front of the EPA offices and chanted, “Hey hey! No fear! You can blow the whistle ‘cause we are here!” This statement was in response to the chilling effect that retaliation against whistleblowers has had at the EPA.
