A group of Greenpeace activists on Wednesday scaled a 270-foot crane in Washington, D.C., to drop a message intended for President Donald Trump

The crane, located at a downtown construction site at 15 &L, stands just blocks way from the White House. 

The protest from the environmental group comes a day after Trump signed executive actions on the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines. Trump’s administration also moved to delay implementation of at least 30 environmental rules and froze new Environmental Protection Agency contracts and grant awards.

Greenpeace USA and multiple news outlets are streaming the protest.

Washingtonians watching downtown were surprised by the spectacle.

Many in support of Greenpeace’s climate change message tweeted their support.
