I was looking for some info on the first Earth Day and I came across this really cool footage of students trying to have a peaceful protest at Logan and then all hell broke loose. Innocent people trying to make a point get arrested.

Then I found this years version.  Quite a difference from the old days that’s for sure.

“In 2009, the United Nations agreed to name April 22nd International Mother Earth Day to recognize the importance of the world’s vital ecosystems. Nearly forty years before in 1970, United States Senator Gaylord Nelson created Earth Day and drew over 20 million participants to its first celebration. Today, more than one billion people in 200-plus countries across the globe celebrate Earth Day annually.

America’s most patriotic city, Boston, joins in on the Earth Day party, becoming one of the nation’s most environmentally conscious cities in April.
