The #Delta5 are a set of activists that put climate change data before American juries in their trial and made some success in presenting their case as ecological self-defense instead of corporate obstruction. While Tim DeChristopher got several years in prison for disrupting an oil auction, the #Delta5 were able to argue their case to a jury and get off the hook. This is an advance for science and humanity and it was illegal. Corporations are destroying earth and it time to obey the law of reason and slow their progress down. #COP21 was a miserable failure. Normal modes of action in the Capitalist system are too slow, so it is time to act outside the system. The issue with this is effectively getting the laws changed. The #Delta5 case is very interesting to this end. It will be interesting to study the laws around this area in the next week. I will write more as I learn more. Here is the website of the group’s trial.
