Protesters risk arrest at White House to oppose MVP and fracking

On the 8th of June, protesters opposing the Mountain Valley Pipeline and fracking showed up at the White House. Under "Apocalyptic" Code Purple air from wildfire smoke, they protested the kind of climate recklessness that generates weather favorable for more fires.

The protest took over the "between the lamp posts" tourist postcard photo area directly in front of the White House on the Penn Ave sidewalk, which is arrestable. As in a number of protests in the past year, no arrests were reported.

The all but dead Mountain Valley Pipeline has gotten another Frankenstein "jump start" from Manchin's forced inclusion of permit approvals for it in the "dirty deal" debt ceiling bill.
