D.C. Superior Court documents indicate Greenpeace protesters who climbed a crane Wednesday cost a construction company and workers a lot of money.
The seven activists who climbed the 270-foot crane, spent one night in jail and were released Thursday night after a court appearance.
On Wednesday, they allegedly broke into a construction site near 15th & L Streets NW around 2:48 a.m. They then climbed the giant crane, eventually hanging a banner that read: “Resist” from it in protest of President Donald Trump.
Clark Construction is working with other companies to build a new office and retail development called Midtown Center on the property.
