Trial date set for Greenpeace activists in P&G protest



Published: Thu, July 31, 2014 @ 4:35 p.m.

CINCINNATI (AP) — A trial date has been set in October for eight of nine Greenpeace activists facing felony charges for an eye-catching protest at Procter & Gamble’s headquarters in downtown Cincinnati.

The trial date for the activists was set for Oct. 27 in Hamilton County court today.

Defense attorneys and prosecutors say just one of the protesters expressed willingness to accept a plea agreement in the case to avoid prison time.

That man will be in court ahead of the trial to officially plead to the charges.

The activists are charged with burglary and vandalism for a March 4 protest in which they slipped into P&G and displayed huge banners from towers criticizing palm oil supplies used by the consumer products company that Greenpeace links to rainforest destruction.
