Lucy and the Taranaki 7 are heading to court tomorrow on burglary charges stemming from their protest on board a Shell rig in NZ. They didn't even steal anything!? When I think of all the awful horrible evil people in the world committing despicable crimes, and getting away with it....., these charges are so lame.
They're just some good peeps trying to do some good in the world.
Oh, I know, they broke laws, rules, yadda, yadda, yadda! Sometimes rules and laws need to be broken in orders to create good and positive change. If you don't believe me, go read some history books.
In the meantime support, support support:
