Climate blockaders strike 2nd day in a row in AM rush hour

On the 8th of December, climate blockaders shut down I-395's exit from the tunnel onto New York Ave. The previous day, climate blockaders had been part of the larger ShutDown DC direct action that choked off much of the vehicle access to the US Capitol.
