Guilty under the law, but acquitted anyway

Gandhi, Mandela, Martin Luther King — and Jesus — all said that when a law is immoral, it is our duty to break it.

This is what Extinction Rebellion is about.

In 2019, a bunch of people were arrested for damaging the Shell building in London. The trial has just concluded. After 7 hours of deliberation, the jury has acquitted them.

Wonderful.

You can read about it in the Guardian.

About Dr Bob Rich

I am a professional grandfather. My main motivation is to transform society to create a sustainable world in which my grandchildren and their grandchildren in perpetuity can have a life, and a life worth living. This means reversing environmental idiocy that's now threatening us with extinction, and replacing culture of greed and conflict with one of compassion and cooperation.
