A large crowd marched through downtown Potsdam on Saturday to voice their opposition to federal policies that are peeling away environmental protections. North Country Assemblywoman Addie A.E. Jenne said rural residents like those living in the North Country understand the importance of protecting the environment. Jenne was one of the speakers at a rally Saturday in Ives Park prior to a People's Climate March. The event, organized by the North Country 350 Alliance, drew close to 400 people.
