WATCH: Protest Against Con Ed After Power Outage Affects Tens of Thousands of NYers

Protesters marched in NYC after a massive power outage left tens of thousands without power.

One of the protesters speaking with the megaphone blames ConEd not only for the blackout but also for climate change.


Per Marla Diamond “@ConEdison spokesman Phillip O’Brien says 3 networks shut down for 28 minutes affecting 180,000 customers on the UWS, UES, Harlem. Cause is under investigation.’

New Yorkers shared social media photos and videos of the near complete darkness.

One was able to capture the moment the electricity came back.
