Representatives from Boston Climate Action Network and We Are Boston’s Waterfront held a rally on Sunday afternoon outside the Aquarium MBTA station. The groups are seeking a moratorium on waterfront development, implementation of Community Choice Energy (CCE) and immediate action to protect against the flooding caused by sea level rise. Standing near the site of  the historic flooding from January 4th and March 3rd, the activists wore painted kayaks, held signs, and passed out fliers to people attending the rally. Just days before, record flooding was seen at the site from Nor’Easter Riley for the second time in as many months.
