Quick release was a ‘big surprise’

IMG_6698 (3)During an interview at the Greyhound Bus Station in Knoxville, Plowshares protester Greg Boertje-Obed said his release from federal prison this weekend was a “big surprise.” He said attorneys had told him that the appeals process, even after the Sixth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals overturned the conviction on sabotage charges, could take a couple of months to play out and delay the release. The government has yet to announce whether it will appeal the Sixth Circuit’s sabotage ruling. (KNS photo/Saul Young)
