The Pacific Northwest is fast becoming a corridor for fossil fuel development. In September 2014, five citizens placed themselves in the way of that system, declaring it necessary to avert climate catastrophe. Now they are being put on trial, and they need your support.

Attend the Delta 5 Trial, please RSVP!

Trial date is set for January 11th 2016, in Lynwood.  We hope that we will be able to present a necessity defense and will be able to put expert witnesses on the stand to argue that 1) there is verifiable imminent danger 2) that we had a reasonable expectation of efficacy in taking our action 3) that we have (and the climate movement has) pursued every available legal alternative. Attend the trial if you can, invite others to come as a light to the darkness of powers and principalities.  Dress in your best.
