Climate protesters descend on DC to urge ‘Climate Emergency’ declaration – Block roads & vandalize sculpture at National Gallery of Art

Wash Post excertp: Three climate protesters were arrested after blocking traffic on the George Washington Memorial Parkway in the area of the scenic overlooks Wednesday morning during a demonstration demanding that President Biden declare a climate emergency. The protesters blocked the northbound lanes for about 30 minutes before they were cleared by 9:15 a.m., said Sgt. Thomas Twiname, a spokesman for the U.S. Park Police. The three demonstrators will be charged with disorderly conduct, Twiname said. Tim Martin, 54, of Raleigh, N.C., who was not among those arrested, said he traveled to the D.C. region to join Declare Emergency, a group seeking governmental action on climate change, in its demonstration Wednesday, which he said lasted about an hour. A video posted by Declare Emergency shows six people walking into the highway as cars approached. Ultimately, three protesters remained sitting on the highway as they held signs that demanded “DECLARE EMERGENCY” and “NO WILLOW PROJECT,” referring to the Alaskan oil development and the Biden administration’s approval of one of the largest oil developments on federal land.
