More Than 40 Frontline, Indigenous and Climate Leaders Occupy the Department of the Interior Headquarters to Demand President Obama End Fossil Fuel Lease Sales

Several protesters were arrested this afternoon after more than 40 frontline, indigenous and climate leaders occupied the headquarters of the Department of the Interior to demand that President Obama end fossil fuel lease sales. The group just entered the lobby chanting “Keep it in the Ground.”

The action highlights President Obama’s authority to stop leases sales of public lands and waters and to lock in half of the potential climate pollution from all remaining fossil fuels in the United States.
