3 Climate Defiance Members out of jail
The conditions of these jails are described as terrible. The holding cells for court appearances, ie: the 24 hour holding area before going before a judge, remain in terrible condition. Metal beds, with holes in them which can cut you or your clothing. Cockroaches. Very little food - and loud rambunctious behavior from inmates who at times are having mental health issues or other problems. These are the conditions described by Michael Greenberg, after his 36 hour stay.
Michael Greenberg, “I fully believe that the reason they kept us for 36 hours was not because the DC police wanted to but because people very high in the administration wanted to send a message. But the message (we are sending) is that we will come back bigger, and stronger, harder, and faster and more often, and more intensely until we get the future we deserve. No new fossil future projects. No extraction on federal land.
We DO NOT do petitions.
If people in power will not save us we will save ourselves
There is no choice, we need consistent, mass-turnout, nonviolent disruption to stop business as usual and compel politicians to act
Wherever you are, rise up and join the youth standing up FACE TO FACE with the climate criminals signing our lives away
We put our bodies on the line

“What are our responsibilities at this time? Because of the fossil fuel industry, we are facing horrors of a magnitude never before experienced in our existence. Our government continues to lead us to the edge of no return. We must stand up and defend ourselves. No one else is going to do it. It must be us, if we want to live.
Our methods must be disruptive, and they must be nonviolent. Our actions are evidence-based, credible, and we have a plan. The only thing missing at this point in time is YOU!”
