Free speech or trespassing? Judge deciding fate of pipeline protesters at Vikings game


August 11, 2017

A Hennepin County judge is deciding whether protesters who hung a banner at U.S. Bank Stadium during a Vikings game demanding the sponsor divest itself from the controversial Dakota Access Pipeline were trespassing or had a constitutional right to do it.

Karl Zimmerman and Sen Holiday are using the misdemeanor case against them to amplify their opposition to the North Dakota energy project by calling witnesses to testify about the dangers of climate change and how civil disobedience can affect environmental policy, according to court records.
