by SIERRA Staff: “This week, hundreds of people from across the United States converged on the White House to call on President Joe Biden to declare a national climate emergency and to use the full scope of his executive powers to halt the continued expansion of fossil fuels… On Monday—Indigenous Peoples Day—more than 130 people were arrested in front of the White House… The protests… were organized by the Build Back Fossil Free, a coalition of Indigenous, Black, environmental, and social justice organizations… “With the power of a pen, President Biden could stop these pipeline projects,” Joye Braun of the Indigenous Environmental Network said in a statement. “He promised he would listen to us. He’s not listening. We’re coming every day of this week to tell Biden, ‘Stop this madness.’”
