The Washington Post reports that seven activists from Greenpeace have climbed a construction crane in downtown D.C., halting traffic. And damn if they didn't select the best crane, bigly.
This "resist" banner placement is incredible. pic.twitter.com/eOOfCXgdhw— Marika Shaub (@marikatogo) January 25, 2017
With great power comes great responsibility.
Here's what it looks like from inside the White House.
JUST NOW: Protestors from Greenpeace unfurl giant banner reading "RESIST." Here's view from the White House. pic.twitter.com/alJeUW0fBV— Peter Alexander (@PeterAlexander) January 25, 2017
Cassady Sharp, a spokesperson for Greenpeace, told The Washington Post that the 35-foot by 75-foot banner was chosen to hang about one-half mile away from the White House “to send a message to the people who are feeling discouraged after just a few days of [President] Trump’s administration.”
This action comes just one day after Trump signed executive orders for the constructions of the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines, which have disastrous consequences for the environment.
Watch the banner unfurl.
One of the protests, Karen Topakian, went live one hundred feet off the ground.
This is only the beginning.
