Environmental protesters gathered in Washington on Friday, October 15, for the fifth day in a row, demanding a stop to fossil-fuel projects and asking that President Joe Biden declare a national climate emergency.

The People vs Fossil Fuels demonstrations, organized by a coalition of groups known as Build Back Fossil Free, began with rallies led by indigenous people on Monday.

According to Jamie Henn, the Director of Fossil Free Media, 130 people were arrested on Thursday, when they gathered at the Chamber of Commerce building and entered the Stewart Lee Udall Department of the Interior Building.
