Coal protesters admit trespass last summer

A group of 14 people admitted Monday to trespassing in the Montana Capitol building last summer in protest of coal development in Montana.

They’ll pay fines and get the chance to keep the matter off their records.

But the group, affiliated with the Missoula-based Blue Skies Campaign, said their fight over coal and global warming isn’t over.

“I certainly anticipate that there will be more direct action and more civil disobedience,” Nicholas Engelfried, of Missoula, said outside Municipal Court on Monday morning.
