Portland Man to be Sentenced Tuesday for Smokestack Banner in Pennsylvania

 
A Portland man will be sentenced Tuesday along with 5 co-defendants for an action hanging a banner from a smokestack at a coal plant in PA last summer. Josh Raisler Cohn will likely be sentenced to 30 days imprisonment at the Greene County Prison.

info from greenpeace's website: After hanging a banner on the 700-foot smokestack of one of the dirtiest coal plants in the country to protest the Bush administration's energy plan, six peaceful Greenpeace activists were charged with multiple state and federal felonies. Federal and state officials dismissed the most serious charges, but other charges remain.
