Indigenous activists protests for climate justice at White House
Indigenous activists came to Washington, D.C. on Indigenous People’s Day, holding a rally outside of the White House, calling for President Joe Biden to declare a national climate emergency and to take more serious action to curb fossil fuel projects and cut greenhouse gas emissions.
Protesters sang, danced, and prayed during the rally, as tensions rose between activists and police at the location. Police detained some protesters, but no arrests were made. The statue of former U.S. President Andrew Jackson was vandalized during the demonstration
