A group of protesters have scaled a 270 foot crane in Washington, D.C. not far from the White House and they have unfurled a giant banner reading “RESIST.”
Protesters with Greenpeace have scaled a crane in downtown D.C. and unfurled a banner in a protest against President Donald Trump.
The demonstration began around 8 a.m. Wednesday when several protesters scaled the crane located on the site of the old ‘Washington Post’ building at 15th Street and L Street. Greenpeace took responsibility for the protest prior to the unfurling of the 70-foot by 35-foot banner with the word “Resist” printed on it.
The group said the banner is positioned to face the White House which is less than a mile to the south. Our FOX 5 cameras were situated behind the banner when it was opened. Seven protesters in total tethered themselves to and scaled the crane.
I wonder if Keith Olbermann is involved.
