Greenpeace attorneys question P&G's damage claim

Following Ohio protest, Greenpeace activists facing felony charges.

CINCINNATI — Attorneys for nine Greenpeace activists facing felony charges for a stunning protest at Procter & Gamble’s headquarters are challenging the consumer product company’s damage claims.

In a new court filing, defense attorneys want a Hamilton County Common Pleas judge to order P&G to allow them into company headquarters in Cincinnati to take photos that the attorneys claim they can use to show that window and paver damage wasn’t caused by the protest.

Prosecutors didn’t respond immediately for comment.

The two sides are due back in court Thursday for a pretrial hearing. 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 company that Greenpeace links to rainforest destruction.
