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.

Roger Federer produces wonderful backhand victor against Kei Nishikori

The White House's New Approach to Climate Change: Who Gives a Shit?
The Foundation will be based in the south side of Chicago and facilitate projects "all over the city, the country and the world". In other words-for not the first time in recent memory-a Trump had seemingly stolen intellectual property from an Obama.
"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.
