RESIST”: Greenpeace Hangs Massive Banner from Crane Near White House

HeadlineJan 26, 2017
H05 resist

Activists from the group Greenpeace hung a massive, 70-by-35-foot banner reading ”RESIST” from a crane only blocks from the White House Wednesday. This is Greenpeace’s Nancy Hernandez.

Nancy Hernandez: “I’m standing here on top of a crane 300 feet in the air over the White House, where we have just deployed a banner. And this banner, it is a message to this administration. But more than that, this is a hand-painted love letter to you. This is a message to the people.”
