Support 9 activists on trial in Reykjavik as well as spokes persons for Climate Justice Action in Copenhagen. Their protests were nonviolent, but they are still accused of violent attack.

Support the 9 Reykjavik and COP15 Activists!

Right now a trial takes place in Reykjavik of 9 activists who protested from the parliamentary gallery against the economic policies that brought Iceland to the brink of bankruptcy. Their protest was nonviolent, but they are still accused of violent attack with a term of imprisonment of minimum 1 year or up to life. Prosecutor redefines the traditional understanding of violence and makes the practice of much civil disobedience to violence. This is a gross assault on ordinary language and common sense of justice. If the charge is recognized, will Gandhi inspirational non-violent actions be 'violent' and it will in future be harder to resolve conflicts in a peaceful manner.

Something similar happened recently in Copenhagen during the climate summit, as spokespersons for Climate Justice Action were convicted of violence and sentenced in a lower court to four months imprisonment because they as speakers had urged demonstrators to push the police cordon.
