Judge clears Swiss climate protestors, because climate change is a clear danger

A bunch of people dressed in tennis clothes, and staged a demo at Credit Suisse, which has been a major funder of fossil fuel projects. The tennis link is because they sponsor Roger Federer.

They were convicted of trespass and the like, and there was a hefty fine, which they refused to pay.

Now, Judge Philippe Colelough has reversed the judgment, because of the clear and visible effects of the climate catastrophe. Switzerland’s glaciers are melting, with often disastrous avalanches in previously safe locations. Entire mountains are falling apart.

Credit Suisse has promised to stop funding new fossil fuel projects, but hasn’t (hopefully, yet) withdrawn its funding from existing ones.

So, keep up the pressure, lovely people!
