Activists from Greenpeace unfurled a 70ft banner inscribed with the word “resist” near the White House on Wednesday morning in an act of civil disobedience.

Five activists are visible in the video, although a total of seven were involved in the action.

When they returned to the ground at 9pm, the activists were arrested and charged with second-degree burglary, unlawful entry, and destruction of property.
