Ahhh....seems quite normal to charge a whole organization with a obscure 1872 law...Nov. 14 ? When Greenpeace activists illegally scrambled aboard the cargo ship APL Jade, it was the start of a pretty typical day. Convinced the ship was hauling contraband mahogany from Brazil, the environmentalists aimed to draw attention to it by unfurling a banner with this message: ?President Bush, Stop Illegal Logging.? Their arrests by the Coast Guard were also part of a day?s work. But the later use of an obscure 19th century law to charge the entire organization with criminal conspiracy has Greenpeace defenders claiming that they are the target of U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft?s attempts to stifle political criticism of the government.
