Long-term CANA member Rosemary Penwarden gained global coverage for her recent trial for “disrupting” a fossil fuel conference in Queenstown.
Here is a sample of that coverage:
Although the judge disallowed her eloquent “public interest” defence, after the jury’s guilty verdict, even the prosecutor appeared to agree that Rosemary should be discharged without conviction.
This was, overall, a huge PR blow to the fossil fuel organisation whose conference she targeted, and they have since changed their name…
Well done, Rosemary!
