“Group of about a dozen stepped out of vans and sat in the middle of the highway,” journalist Alejandro Alvarez reported online of the protest on I-395.

National radio host Todd Starnes reacted to the blockage by the group, Declare Emergency, on Twitter.
“It’s an interstate. Why are motorists slowing down?” Starnes wrote, adding “#4WheelDrive.”

The group did the same stunt Friday, upsetting drivers and resulting in threats.
“People are trying to get to work, hundreds of people trying to get to work,” one of the drivers said to protesters, according to Ford Fischer of the independent media outlet News2Share. “What are you doing?”
“We do not enjoy putting our bodies on the line, we do it because we must,” Declare Emergency tweeted following the protest. “We will keep doing it until [Biden] declares a climate emergency and stops fossil fuel extraction on federal and indigenous land.”
