Tree protest in Washington

Wash. --- A young Washington woman is taking protesting to new heights.

19 year old Chiara D'Angelo is perched 70 feet up in an evergreen to protest a shopping development.

She is against their plan to cut down hundreds of trees to clear space. D'Angelo has food, supplies and she's drawing a lot of attention as people pass by.

D'Angelo doesn't know how long she'll stay up there, but police have informed her she is trespassing.
