Three days after the Global Climate Strike, activists are taking to the streets of Washington, D.C., today to slow down the morning commute in an effort to call attention to the issue.

全球氣候罷工已過去3天,激進分子今天走上華盛頓特區街頭妨礙早間通勤,以此來呼吁公眾關注此事。
Called Shut Down DC, a coalition of climate change protesters is shutting down intersections around the district.
此次活動被稱為“關閉華盛頓特區”,一些氣候變化抗議者聯合封鎖該地區的交叉路口。
Local officials have advised people trying to get around the area to use mass transit or bikes instead — or to avoid the traffic completely by working remotely.
地方官員已建議附近的人使用公共交通或改騎自行車,或者通過遠程工作避免出行。
The disruption comes on the same day as the United Nations Climate Action Summit in New York.
這一活動正值紐約召開聯合國氣候行動峰會。

The actions began at 7 a.m. They included a pink and yellow yacht as a barricade, activists in intersections dressed as scuba divers and dinosaurs, a mobile blood pressure clinic set up in the middle of the street, and midstreet dance parties, according to organizers. Among the areas targeted were streets near the offices of Amazon and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

早上七點鐘活動開始。據組織者稱,他們拿一艘粉黃相間的游艇做路障,交叉路口的激進分子打扮成戴水肺的潛水員和恐龍,街道中間開設一個流動血壓診所,還有中街舞會。活動目標區域有亞馬遜和美國移民和海關執法局辦公室附近的街道。
"#ShutDownDC builds on the recent surge of climate strikes and mass protests that have rattled politicians around the world," activists said in a statement.
激進分子在聲明中說:“‘關閉華盛頓特區’的活動起因是最近氣候罷工和大規模抗議增多,使全世界的政治家們都感到不安”。
The coalition demands include a Green New Deal, governments agreeing to protect at least 50% of the land and oceans on the planet, and an end to deforestation by 2030.
激進分子聯盟的要求包括《綠色新政》,政府要同意保護地球至少50%的土地和海洋,到2030年終止森林砍伐。
