Greenpeace RESISTS Trump – level 2

30-01-2017 15:00

President Trump delayed environmental rules and restarted pipeline projects. The organisation Greenpeace does not like that, and it put a banner just blocks from the White House.

The banner is 21 by 11 metres and reads “RESIST”. It hangs from an 82-metre crane.

Greenpeace says that it is calling for people who want to stand against Trump.

Difficult words: delay (decide to do something later), environmental rules (laws which protect the planet), call for (ask for help).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
