"Expect Us" was painted on the base of a statue of President Andrew Jackson as Line 3 protesters gathered in Washington.

Line 3 opponents took their case against the controversial newly built pipeline to Washington last week, focusing on Democratic President Joe Biden during his first year in office.

A show of strength to demonstrate continued opposition to Line 3 came Tuesday near a popular area in the nation's capital, at an event that included music and speakers outside the headquarters for the Army Corps of Engineers. Some in the crowd held signs saying "STOP LINE 3" while another read "Biden Declare Climate Emergency."

"I hope that it gets more people out on the front line," 13-year-old Silas Neeland, a member of the White Earth Nation, said before Tuesday's event began. "I hope they finally listen."
