Climate Protesters Swarm White House, Vandalize Jackson Statue, Warn Biden

Left-wing climate protesters hit the D.C. streets Monday, vandalizing a statue of former President Andrew Jackson and swarming the White House while warning President Biden to take their demands seriously.

The Build Back Fossil Free coalition took to the DC streets Monday with their five-day-long protest’s aim to spur action by the Biden administration against climate change, mainly by declaring a national emergency and ending projects involving fossil fuels.

Siqiñiq Maupin, director of coalition core member the Sovereign Inupiat for a Living Arctic, told Fox News in a Monday email statement that the protest was happening because they believe Biden needs to follow through on his campaign promises.

“People are dying right now from the pollutants, the toxins, the climate catastrophes that are happening — and we have to stop the harm,” Maupin wrote. “Biden’s election was riding on climate change; his entire election hinged on turning out people of color and Indigenous people.”

“But when it really comes to what matters, our lives are still being sacrificed for oil and gas,” Maupin continued. “That’s why we’re here today.”

So far, Monday’s protest has seen the U.S. Park Police warn of police action should the demonstrators not disperse and a protester arrested while screaming she did “not want to die.”

Fox News’ Jacqui Heinrich noted that protesters were heard chanting for Biden to “respect” them or to “expect” them, scrawling “expect us” in graffiti on Jackson’s statue outside the White House.

The coalition is a climate change-focused nonprofit aimed at ensuring “Biden becomes the climate president he promised to be” according to its website, and is supported by several businesses and organizations, including Ben & Jerry’s and Patagonia.

Each day of protest will feature a theme, with Monday’s protest being centered on Indigenous Peoples Day.

    Why are they not put in jail without bail, they are just as bad if not worse than the people on Jan 6th, Oh I know it is because they are democrats and they are allowed to do as they please, just like with all the rioting, burning and killing, well the republicans are getting tired of the double standards, it is time for this adminstration to be gone

    Something I didn’t know about the White House is that before the administration of Theodore Roosevelt, it was called the Executive Mansion. Roosevelt changed it to the White House in 1901. I am just throwing that out because I thought it was an interesting fun fact. 🙂
