St. Patrick’s Four sentencing this week

posted by Mike on January 24th, 2006

The St. Patrick’s Four are being sentenced this week. Danny Burns was sentenced yesterday to six months in prison.

Last year a jury found them guilty of misdemeanor charges of property damage and trespassing in connection with a nonviolent 2003 demonstration against the Iraq War. They were acquitted of the much more serious charges of conspiracy to impede a federal officer.

You can expect additional commentary from Running Scared, who did a great job covering the trial.

Speaking of nonviolent protest, last week Greenpeace dumped a 20-ton dead whale in front of the Japanese embassy in Berlin.

Speaking of nothing in particular, Clark University is holding a series of events about the Wobblies. I couldn’t find a “home page” for the series.
