In an extremely important ruling for climate change protestors everywhere, New York City Judge Robert Mandelbaum found 10 people who had been arrested during a sit-in on Wall Street ‘Not Guilty’. He ruled that police violated the protestors first amendment rights by ordering them to leave the Wall Street area.
The most important part of the ruling however, was the judge going even further by “taking judicial notice that climate change is happening, is a serious problem, requires immediate action and is caused by human activity” said Flood Wall Street.
This is believed to be the first time a judge has stated that climate change is a problem, and something needs to be done about it.
