CDC Resources: Climate Necessity

We've just published a pamphlet on using the Necessity Defense as a legal tactic for the climate movement. The pamphlet digs into the circumstances under which one would use such a defense, what the process of using this defense would look like, and some recent case history in the climate movement. This piece was researched and written by CDC summer intern, friend and colleague Ted Hamilton, a student at Harvard Law school, who also authored a detailed history of the necessity defense for the Boston Globe in 2015 leading up to the Lobster Boat Blockade Trial. We're grateful to have Ted on board with the Climate Disobedience Center, and we hope you'll find this tool helpful. Please share! And check back soon, we'll have a printable PDF version.
