WASHINGTON – Police say they believe seven protesters who climbed a 270-foot crane at a downtown Washington construction site just blocks from the White House are associated with the environmental group Greenpeace.

Capt. Robert Glover of the Metropolitan Police Department told reporters Wednesday morning that officers were called to the area of 15th and L streets and found three people who weren't authorized to be at the site attached to the crane. He says another four people are now on the crane, too. Glover says the protesters believed to be associated with Greenpeace told police they're conducting a First Amendment action.

It'll be interesting to see what they're up to. Pretty stupid if you ask me.

Maybe we'll get lucky and they'll fall on some cross fitters and vegans.

I've been watching, thanks for posting.

The chat is more entertaining then these idiots.

I think they are SO SLOW because they know they are going to jail when done.

They came pretty well prepared with all the harnesses and ropes. Pretty stupid as they'll be arrested as soon as they get down and what ever stupid banner they're about to unfurl wont be up for long.

Could also be the lack of protein in their diet.

Yes pretty stupid, but at least it seems like they know what they are doing, with all the climbing gear and all. I thought it was gonna be some half naked people climbing by hand and no ropes.

The latest pipeline leak..."it's not clear" (why not?)..."We have several working theories" (where were these theories at the onset of building the pipeline so as to mitigate damages?)..."hillside sloughed" (isn't that a given?)...




It's not yet clear why electronic monitoring equipment didn't detect the leak, Owen told the Asssociated Press. Owen said the pipeline was shut down immediately after the leak was discovered. The pipeline is buried on a hill near Ash Coulee creek, and the "hillside sloughed," which may have ruptured the line, she said. "That is our number one theory, but nothing is definitive," Owen said. "We have several working theories and the investigation is ongoing."

Wales is in Great Britain,

But, there are no whales up there, either.

If the destruction and pollution continue, there will be no whales anywhere.
