Declare Emergency Supporter Takes Plea
In August, Declare Emergency supporter, Anastasia Rogers, 31, a spokesperson for Declare Emergency, joined actions in the streets of Washington DC, resulting in two arrests. One of these arrests they joined editor-in-chief, Will Regan, as he glued himself to the road. Today they stood in court to bravely defend herself. Because a fair trial, with jury, is not allowed in cases of misdemeanor, Anastasia felt compelled to take a guilty plea in exchanged for dropped charges, and a deferred sentencing.
Anastasia Rogers said after taking her plea, "The court system is not designed to protect us. Today I felt forced into taking a plea deal because of lack of other options. We are told we have the right to a trial with a jury of our peers but in DC thats not the case. I still stand by that I am not guilty of any crime or doing anything wrong. However, without a Jury my case would unlikely be fair. I accepted the deal in order to focus my time on continual activism as opposed to being preoccupied with legal system obligations that have consumed much of my head space and physical time over the last 2 months.

“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!”
