Two climate activists vandalized the National Archives Rotunda by dumping red powder on the encasement protecting the U.S. Constitution.

The incident led to an evacuation and closure of the Rotunda for cleaning.

The suspects, associated with the group “Declare Emergency,” called for equal rights for all and demanded action on climate change.

They were arrested and are facing federal charges.

Dr. Colleen Shogan, Archivist of the United States, emphasized the seriousness of the vandalism and pledged to prosecute the perpetrators.

Dr. Shogan wrote in a statement, “The National Archives Rotunda is the sanctuary for our nation’s founding documents.”

“They are here for all Americans to view and understand the principles of our nation. We take such vandalism very seriously and we will insist that the perpetrators be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law,” her statement continued.

Declare Emergency posted, “We don’t want the end of civilization but that’s the path we’re currently on.”

Adding, “Declare Emergency’s nonviolent civil disobedience is love in action everyday, not just on Valentine’s Day.”
