There are some simple things you can do to show your support for this campaign, whether you have 5 minutes to spare or can commit more time, either way it will be really, really appreciated.
- Come to court to support the defendents!
There are two trials coming up and there’s nothing defendents appreciate more than having friends, family and fellow campaigners there to support them.
- Give a statement of support
One of the most important aspects of this campaign is to demonstrate that these activists are not alone in their concern for our environment and the threat of climate change. Show your support and solidarity by giving a statement of support to the group. You can read existing ones here, or submit your own.

- Volunteer to help the Defence Committee
The Defence Committee are a steering group of friends and family alongside people who have expertise in environmental legal defense, media work, climate change issues or threat of climate change for the UK. We aim to support the co-defendants on paper and in the media, as well as caring for their general well-being.
We believe that have this high profile support will build the profile of the trial and generate increasing recognition. The defence committee will speak to or be named in the press and push the main messages of support
If you think have skills that could contribute to making this campaign happen, whether it’s legal expertise of your vegan cake baking skills, then please let us know!
