Arrest Update: Climate resistor Max placed under house arrest!
Three amazing humans were arrested yesterday at the Congressional baseball game demanding a Climate Emergency declaration: @now____or_never
Bridget spent the night in jail and was released earlier today. The police officers were very aggressive and she worried that they were going to dislocate her shoulder. When she complained she was told: “You should’ve thought about that before you broke the law.”
Max will be spending the rest of the weekend in jail until he can be fitted with an ankle monitor come Monday. At his court hearing the judge ridiculously stated that he is “a danger to the community” — because of repeated engagement in nonviolent direct action.
This is an extreme response to completely proportional action given the crisis. Please retweet to spread the message—and consider signing up for civil resistance action including arrest yourself. That is the only thing left for us to do if we want a future.
