Greenpeace RESISTS Trump – level 3

30-01-2017 15:00

After Trump issued orders to delay environmental rules and restart pipeline projects, Greenpeace protestors unfurled a banner reading “RESIST” just blocks from the White House. The yellow and orange 21 by 11-metre political statement hangs from an 82-metre tall crane.

Greenpeace says that it is “calling for those who want to resist Trump’s attack on environmental, social, economic, and educational justice to contribute to a better America”.

The activists used ropes and harnesses to climb the crane at the construction site, but the police tweeted that their actions were “extremely dangerous and unlawful” and closed off three city blocks while the action took place.

Difficult words: unfurl (spread out from a rolled state), harness (climbing safety equipment).
