Greenpeace Indicted For Rushmore Demonstration

July 21, 2009, 6:31 PM

Greenpeace Indicted For Rushmore Demonstration
The federal prosecutor said a grand jury indicted Greenpeace and 11 individuals for conspiracy and other misdemeanors for hanging a global warming banner from Mount Rushmore National Memorial.

U.S. Attorney Marty Jackley said Greenpeace provided planning and training for co-conspirators and hired a helicopter so it could photograph and record the event in the Black Hills on July 8.  Jackley said some defendants tried to impede responding law enforcement officers by placing locks on security gates and chaining themselves to areas where it would be difficult or impossible to get around them without risk of personal injury.

Other charges against the individuals include trespassing, climbing Mount Rushmore, aiding and abetting, and interfering with a government official.
