Six Mass. women face nuke protest charges

(Continued)

Shriver and Brown refused to say whether the proximity to the storm-related emergency is what prompted the trespass charges against the women. The charges carry a potential penalty of three months in jail and a $500 fine for each defendant.

Crowe said she had had a long career in such protests and previously served time in jail. She spent three months in jail in Cranston, R.I., after being arrested during a protest against nuclear weapons in that state, she said.

She said she was pleased her Vermont activities were drawing a stiffer reaction from authorities.

“We are very honored. They’re finally taking us seriously and they’re taking us to trial,” Crowe said.

Asked how many time she had been arrested in such protests, she pointed to the fact that war, nuclear weapons and nuclear power plants continue to exist. “Not enough,” she said. “I don’t know. I don’t count. But I know I haven’t achieved what I’m trying to achieve.”
