Unjust laws are wrong
Civil Disobedience
Is doing what’s right!

Civil Disobedience is our duty:

“One has a moral responsibility to disobey
unjust laws.”
Martin Luther King Jr.

Gareth Icke:

“I became convinced that noncooperation
with evil is as much a moral obligation as is
cooperation with good.”
Martin Luther King Jr.,

“An individual who breaks a law that
conscience tells him is unjust, and who
willingly accepts the penalty of
imprisonment in order to arouse the
conscience of the community over its
injustice, is in reality expressing the highest
respect for the law”
Martin Luther King Jr.

Dr. Graham Lyons:

“Protest beyond the law is not a departure
from democracy; it is absolutely essential to
it.”
Howard Zinn

“If you’re not going to use your free speech to criticize your own government, then what the hell is the point of having it?”
Michel Templet

Henry David Thoreau was imprisoned for not paying taxes in protest of slavery and he voluntarily stayed in prison to bring attention to the issue. He was the original off-grid naturalist who chose to live simply in a cabin in the woods. His book, “Civil Disobedience” inspired both MLK Jr. and Ghandi.

“If the injustice is part of the necessary
friction of the machine of government, let it
go, let it go: perchance it will wear smooth
certainly the machine will wear out.. but if
it is of such a nature that it requires you to
be the agent of injustice to another, then I
say, break the law. Let your life be a
counter-friction to stop the machine. What I
have to do is to see, at any rate, that I do not
lend myself to the wrong which I condemn.”
Henry David Thoreau,

Josie the Outlaw:

Apocalypse means revealing, lifting of the veil of reality; it doesn’t necessarily equal destruction. That’s what they’re planning but we can sabotage their evil intentions with simple but effective, world-wide solidarity.

“Colorful demonstrations and weekend
marches are vital but alone are not powerful
enough to stop wars. Wars will be stopped
only when soldiers refuse to fight, when
workers refuse to load weapons onto ships
and aircraft, when people boycott the
economic outposts of Empire that are
strung across the globe.”
Arundhati Roy,
