Civil disobedience

A couple of protesters from the Buffalo Field Campaign got themselves arrested in the Mammoth visitor center. I've always thought the BFC to be unnecessarily shrill, even though I also find the brucellosis-control measures distasteful.

What jumped out at me in this report was the Park spokesman actually using the words civil disobedience. That's not a phrase I usually hear from the authorities (or even news reporters). I have to respect someone who can be inconvenienced, but still maintain perspective like that.
