WASHINGTON, D.C. -Greenpeace protesters shut down D.C. streets Wednesday morning after climbing a 2-hundred-70 foot crane. Seven protesters are believed to be involved, and they have hung a large banner from the crane with the word "RESIST" on it. Police say they are charged with second-degree burglary, unlawful entry and destruction of property.
Protesters started scaling a 270-foot tower crane at a downtown construction site Wednesday morning and unfurled the banner once they reached the top.
The protest near the White House closed streets and snarled traffic in Washington on Wednesday.
Police said the activists "illegally obtained access to a construction site by breaking the locks".
He says it's a continuation of protests that began with Trump's inauguration.

Fire Emblem games coming to Nintendo Switch, 3DS, and mobile
As mentioned, no word yet on the exact launch date but Nintendo has opened pre-registrations for Fire Emblem Heroes . Hot off its Switch unveiling late last week, Nintendo is dropping some key details about its next mobile title.
"MPD respects everyone's right to protest, however, today's actions are extremely unsafe and unlawful", police said in a statement.
We should probably mention that the 70′ x 35′ banner is just several blocks from The White House, and anyone looking from the South Lawn can quite clearly see the message.
The protests comes a day after President Donald Trump moved to delay implementation of some environmental rules and froze new environmental protection agency contracts and grant awards.
