Following Nature’s Lead for Civil Disobedience: Building a New Direct Action Movement Community by Community
(LAW 142) 2:20 – 3:35
As nature goes on the offense with ever increasing catastrophic
climatic events, our activism stays stuck in the 1970s. Our organizing has refused to confront a structure of law that protects environmentally destructive corporate behavior.This panel is about the growing Community Rights movement and how communities are “occupying the law” to dismantle the corporate state, legalize sustainability and secure nature’s rights, and the convergence of community rights with direct action aimed at physically stopping harmful corporate projects.
