Greenpeace Hangs Banners At Procter & Gamble Headquarters To Protest Deforestation

Posted: Updated:

CINCINNATI (AP) — A protest in which Greenpeace activists using a zip line unfurled huge banners at Procter & Gamble Co. headquarters in Cincinnati has ended.

Cincinnati police say nine protesters have been arrested. Police say they were initially being held on charges including vandalism and burglary and were still being questioned Tuesday afternoon.

The environmental organization says the 60-foot banners on P&G's two towers were in protest of the consumer products company's use of palm oil from a supplier that Greenpeace says is linked to tropical forest destruction in Indonesia.

A company spokesman says P&G is committed to achieving 100 percent sustainable sourcing of its palm oil.
