Britain’s top lawyers say they will refuse to prosecute climate activists

A group of top lawyers have declared they will refuse to prosecute climate activists.
Around 120 of Britain’s most eminent lawyers are set to sign a “Declaration of Conscience” stating they will not prosecute eco-protestors brought before the courts.
Prominent lawyers such as Joylon Maugham KC and Sir Geoffrey Bindman KC, and other members of the group “Lawyers are Responsible,” are among the potential signatories, according to the Daily Mail.
Mr Maugham is an activist lawyer who has challenged the Government on a number of issues including Brexit and PPE contracts, while Sir Geoffrey is one of Britain’s most renowned human rights lawyers, who is a member of the Labour Campaign for Human Rights.

        This is an incredibly inspiring act of solidarity from some of Britain's top lawyers. It is a powerful statement that the climate emergency should be taken seriously, and that people have a right to peaceful protest on the issue.

              Climate activists must be protected from any criminal proceedings in regards to fighting for climate action. Bravo to the brave lawyers.

                  This is amazing... Such individuals deserve an award as they understand the importance of advocating for climate justice and action which the activists are doing... We should protect activists as they are the voices of us all

                    That's a powerful stance - the legal profession's influence and moral leadership can be a vital counterbalance to those who may be choosing to ignore climate change and its consequences. Hopefully this will be a signal to policymakers and citizens alike that urgent action needs to be taken to avert disaster.
