Our friends at Extinction Rebellion NYC are hosting a Panel on Defending Rights Against Unjust Charges, featuring guest speakers Steven Donziger and Kamau Franklin. With punitive charges against environmental activists on the rise globally, it’s important to hear from individuals like Steven, who has firsthand experience facing criminal charges while defending farmers’ and Indigenous rights against Chevron. Kamau is a prominent organizer within the Stop Cop City movement, where 61 protestors are facing unjust targeting with RICO charges.

There will also be a raffle, silent auction and letter-writing table in support of Stop Cop City activists, and Joanna Smith and Tim Martin as they face fines and imprisonment for nonviolent climate activism. FUNDRAISER FOR
THE ‘DEGAS TWO’ and STOP COP CITY ACTIVISTS
