Protester, 98, remains defiant, declares she’s ‘ready to go to jail’

GREAT BARRINGTON – Frances Crowe, 98, is prepared to go to jail if it comes to that.

If Crowe, a now internationally written about environmental activist, is found guilty of civil trespassing charges – charges stemming from an Otis State Forest pipeline protest – she will be assessed a $100 fee.

And Crowe does not plan on paying it.

“It’s the people versus the corporations,” Crowe said of her non-violent actions taken against Kinder Morgan subsidiary Tennessee Gas Pipeline Company. “I don’t think I should pay $100 to stop a corporation.”
