Greenpeacers who hung themselves get off

From ANIMAL PEOPLE, July/August 1998:

A Seattle Municipal Court jury on June 11 acquitted
seven Greenpeace activists of nuisance and obstruction charges for
suspending themselves on ropes from the Aurora Bridge, above the
mouth of Lake Union, to block the exit of pollock fishing vessels en
route to the Bering Sea in August 1997. Pollock depletion is suspected
as the cause of starvation deaths of Stellar sea lions and sea birds in
Alaskan waters. Acquitted were Holly Dye, of uncertain age, and
Sean Gale, 27, of Seattle; Katie Flynn-Jambeck, 25, of Warwick,
Massachusetts; Omi Hodwitz, 20, of Vancouver, British Columbia;
Troy Jones, 36, of Russellville, Kentucky; Kelly Osborne, 29, of
Flower Mound, Texas; and Donna Parker, 34, of Missoula,
Montana. Charges alleged accomplices Stephanie Hillman, L o r i
Mudge, and Joseph Dibbee, all of Seattle, were separately dropped.
