(CNSNews.com) – Protestors at Freedom Plaza in Washington, D.C., are promoting a wide range of causes, including saving the planet, even though their protest site is littered with trash and protest paraphernalia.

One sign, lying near a trashcan and a grassy area covered with sleeping bags, plastic bags, chairs, and other belongings, states, “We the People Say Planet Before Profits.”

The protest, which also includes booths for causes such as animal rights, vegetarianism and paganism, is aligned with the Occupy Wall Street protests that began more than two weeks ago in New York City.

The District of Columbia is allowing the protestors to camp at the site and has even installed portable toilets.
