The message "Planet Earth First" was projected in bright green light on the dome of St. Peter's Basilica by Greenpeace activists on the eve of U.S. President Donald Trump's meeting with Pope Francis, Rome police said.
Axar.az reports citing Daily Sabah.
Police said in a statement Wednesday that the officers allowed the action to proceed for "a few moments" given the peaceable nature of the protest. They then identified all of the activists participating, eight total.

Trump's administration, meanwhile, is reviewing policies related to climate change and the reduction of green gasses.
