On the 12th of October, People vs Fossil Fuels direct actions continued in DC. In the morning, activists again descended on the White House, where 155 more people were arrested. A few hours later, Indigenous activists descended on the US Army Corps of Engineers, one of several key agencies in approving pipelines. Climbers replaced the US flags with more appropriate banners.
