"Reverend Billy Faces Year in Jail For JPMorgan Chase Toad Protest"

"Billy Talen to stand trial for preaching on bank's environmental record accompanied by choir members wearing toad hats"

"An actor who uses comic theatre and music to persuade corporations to address climate change faces a year in prison after the largest bank in the US took offence."

"In June, Billy Talen and eight members of the Church of Earthalujah choir walked into the lobby of a Manhattan branch of JPMorgan Chase in New York.

Dressed as central American golden toads, a species that has been made extinct as the result of climate change, they told the staff that they were about to perform 'expressive politics'."
