Since when does the 1st amendment make one protected from criminal trespassing & destruction of property? Disrupting traffic & being a public nusance are also criminal.
Then there could be civil action for the interruption of a lawful business & the cost of ALL of the responders.
They may have an issue but did not choose a method that is without repercussions.
No matter what, The lawyers will come out ahead tho.

I don't consider destroying other peoples property a peaceful protest as green peace claims.

This is deja vu all over again. Check out P&G's former Buckeye Cellulose Division vs. the Sierra Club back int 70's. It is no coincidence P&G changed their logo after the truth came out.

I saw NO truth in their claim. P&G changed their logo because it made simple economic & business sense.
Some years ago a minister claimed that the tongue of a snarling wildcat in an age old logo for the Kentucky Wildcat looked like a penis. So UK altered that logo on T-shirts, cups, flags & whatever for the same reasons. economic & business.
BOTH parties saw something that was NEVER there except in their B.S. imaginative minds.

You cannot get more Satanic than Pampers diapers and Rely tampons. P&G has traditionally paid their rank and file employees a substandard wage for the job description while their management prospered. Years ago when I worked there, male employees in many positions were required by company policy to shave their faces (trim the corners of their beards) to impersonate women and female employees were required to dress in a manner to make them attractive to other women. Maybe not totally Satanic, but not encouraging of a Christian lifestyle.

Well if you were unhappy or uncomfortable working there you did the right thing by leaving.
I will check on the rest of your story when I can.

I know people who have worked for them in the rank and file jobs for years. They claim they are paid and treated very well.

Agreed. I am a 'shuttle' driver & I may shuttle 3 P&G workers in 1 week or none in a month. I have heard NO such thing as posted by 'Rev' from any of them. I will make it a point to ask them now.
In fact I shuttle some of them to the specific departments that Rev mentioned. 6090 Center Hill.
I expect that WE will find out that Rev is full of it.

Here is one example, easily verified. Mechanical Engineer, 10 years experience, P&G, low 60's; AK Steel, mid 80's.

They are free to apply at AK Steel, UC Hospital, GM Exxon/Mobile or any other place. NO one is forced to work for P&G. You appear to be related to Don Quiote. Just keep tilting at windmills.

There is no Moorish contamination in my blood line. In fact no ancestral background traceable to roots south of the Po River going back to Neolithic DNA.

I never meant to imply that there is.
Boy are you one sensitive insecure son of a gun.
And who is to say that 'Moorish' is contamination ? OH, Right, you do, you closed minded, intolerant bigot.
How so "Christian" of you. REVEREND...WOW !
Aren't we ALL brothers & sisters? Aren't we ALL offspring of Abraham?

"Rev" comes from how I handle my motorcycle, not my religious beliefs. You ASSume too much sometimes. Think about Noah's son Ham and/or Adam's son Cain when you question the problems of a mud race contamination. Except for the fact that he is still alive, I'd say David Duke died for your sins. In the Fayetteville context, I'd say Denny Kiley died for your sins.
