Meet the Valve Turners: A Moral Response to Climate Catastrophe
Last October, five people in four states shut the valves on pipelines carrying tar sands oil. The “Valve Turners” say their actions are not only necessary, but morally and legally justified to avoid the catastrophic harm caused to humanity by unprecedented climate disruption. They now face serious charges, up to decades in prison.
The first trial began Jan 31, 2017 for Ken Ward in Washington. Read more about it here.
Annette Klapstein: “I am a retired attorney and the mother of two grown children. Like mothers everywhere, I act from a deep love for my own children that extends out to all children and young people, and all living beings on this planet. I have come to believe that our current economic and political system is a death sentence to life on earth. This is my act of love.”
