The friendly farmer from Babe is facing jail time for a cause.
James Cromwell, a climate activist, was sentenced to one week in jail for his arrest during a protest at a New York power plant in 2015. Two other environmental activists, Pramilla Malick and Madeline Shaw, were also sentenced by a judge in Wawayanda, N.Y.
Cromwell helped stage a sit-in at a natural gas site run by Competitive Power Ventures. He and his fellow activists were charged with obstruction of traffic. Cromwell was sentenced to a jail sentence after he didn’t pay an assigned fine another form of protest.
If we dont stay together, nothing will change, Cromwell told the Times-Herald Record. Power to the people.
Cromwell was hailed as a hero for his principles by fellow activists and actor Jeffrey Tambor.
